I tend to concur on this aspect. How many people today remember a time before the use of pesticides, GMO, etc... foodstuffs? These viral and bacterial infections were all commonplace back then. That was one of the initial reasons to begin those programs to improve the health of the food chain. However, over the decades it has morphed into a money-making venture where profit is king.
"All Natural" means it can contain the things that can make you sick and/pr die. These pathogens, however nasty, are natural after all.
My prediction is that Chipotle management is going to realize this and will eventually take the company back to being private so they don't have unrealistic growth pressures from Wall Street.

Aren't there any other chains that use non-gmo foods? It just seems amazingly coincidental that Chipolte is the only chain with these issues, and this many times. I could be wrong and this might be nothing, but that's why I brought it here.

just my opinion - but :
chipolte has not " been attacked " because of its very recent anti GMO policy
they have a history of contamination and food " poisoning "
further - its anti GMO pandering - has forced it to make logistical changes
last ` wholefoods ` - theres a clue in the name - and they are bigger than monsanto [ by 2014 revenue ] - " attacks " or claims of " attacks " zero
chipolte is a minnow - if you want to attack the anti GMO movement - deep-six wholefoods

I work in a lab, I try and avoid the microbiology department (smells bad). Noro is really really easy to catch. Since it's a virus you don't know you have it until later when the symptoms really kick in.
I think many of the 'mystery illness' on cruise liners a few years ago was noro.
When we get one positive noro, we usually get more from the same 'wing' soon after.
So maybe it is a conspiracy or a plot, but noro does spread quickly (poo hands and vomit... ugh it's awful to think about.)
and to further this discussion, I ask this question, how many other fast food places have employees with "poo hands and vomit"??.....chipotles can't be the only place where this is happening.
