Feds Probing Chipotle Outbreak

Chipotle Mexican Grill is facing scrutiny after a norovirus outbreak at a Simi Valley, California restaurant last summer made more than 230 people sick.

Last year, Chipotle also suffered an E. coli outbreak which sickened more than 50 people in 9 states. Sales at the chain plunged 30 percent in December and nearly 15 percent in the fourth quarter.
