The Centers for Disease Control reported Friday that a case of a customer ill from E. coli has been found at a Chipotle Mexican Grill in Pennsylvania. However, the Pennsylvania Department of Health now says that while there is a case of E. Coli in the state, the person in question did not eat at Chipotle.
"A Pennsylvania resident tested positive for the STEC O26 strain associated with the current outbreak of the illness that has sickened 52 people in nine states," the Department said in a statement Friday afternoon. "Some individuals with this strain of E.coli reported eating at Chipotle Mexican Grill in the week prior to their illness. However, the Pennsylvania resident said they had not eaten at a Chipotle restaurant, and the source of the infection has not yet been determined."
Neither the DOH nor the CDC has stated in which part of Pennsylvania the case was found.
This is a developing story.
