There’s nothing that ruins a fun night out to dinner quite like food poisoning. You hear it on the news, too — food poisoning here, or an outbreak of disease there. But you never really suspect your favorite restaurant chain could be the reason behind your sickness. And in some instances, these popular eateries are known for their repeated offenses.
Want to know if your favorite made the list? Here are the places you’ll want to think twice about dining in.
Chipotle still has major issues
Due to this restaurant chain’s frequent run-ins with food poisoning, it’s losing quite a lot of business. Business Insider explains back in 2014, Chipotles in 14 states were closed due to E. coli and norovirus outbreaks. And this restaurant chain’s rate of illness is nine times higher than the average rate when compared to 10 other competitor eateries.
Though things were looking up for Chipotle after the 2014 debacle, they dealt with another norovirus outbreak in July at one location in Sterling, Virginia. Hopefully they’ll see improvements going forward.
