Chipotle now under federal criminal investigation

From ABC News
Federal authorities have opened a criminal investigation of Chipotle Mexican Grill after a norovirus outbreak in California that led to at least 234 people being sickened, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing. 
The company has come under fire recently after multiple norovirus and E.coli outbreaks last year were linked to the Denver-based restaurant chain, including one E.coli outbreak that sickened at least 53 people in multiple states. 
The company noted in a filing today with the SEC that it has been served with a federal grand jury subpoena and is being investigated by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, in conjunction with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Criminal Investigations.
