Comment: Marion Nestle is a filthy lying whore for Monsanto. TOTAL jezebel sellout scum cunt.
Monsanto is a part of the military industrial complex. … and Chipotle is /was the flagship fast food restaurant thumbing their NON GMO nose at the military company Monsanto. …and it just so happens to be damn coincidental that Chipotle would be under an E coli attack as their NON GMO campaign was taking off like a rocket ship. You don’t hear much about that anymore.
Chipotle was also under attack before the E coli (on going) ‘event’ for non organic issues.
Anyway, I was wondering if the military (via Monsanto) has weaponized E Coli that can be dispersed through ‘inside aerosolization’. Or does monsanto call their buddies at the DHS, and order them up some ‘crisis actors’ signed under ‘national security’ to fake an illness that the ‘bought and paid’ for CDC (ALSO a BIG friend of monsanto) to substantiate the false E coli claims with the goal of ruining the popular fast-food restaurant for going NON GMO. Which, by the way, was well received by the public.
Are the CEO’s of certain other companies getting anonymous communication that the same will happen to them if they try to break from the GMO chains of the NWO?
It’s not that Chipotle in of itself is a big deal, but that a flagship multi million, if not billion dollar company was going off the NWO reservation. That being the bigger deal, because, let’s face it, the GMO industry is hanging on by life support and a growing number of blue chip companies going NON GMO could really put a nail into the coffin GMO’s forever.
It will be interesting to see if Chipotle will continue it’s dedication to NON GMO food or will it ‘cease and diciest’ by threat of the NWO?
I’m fascinated by reports of Chipotle’s ongoing problems with foodborne illness.
- The main interest of the press in these episodes is their effect on Chipotle’s stock prices.
- The outbreaks have been linked to a bunch of different pathogens: E. coli O157:H7, E. coli STEC O26, Salmonella, norovirus, and, possibly, hepatitis A. This means they are due to different causes at different outlets.
- The food, foods, or individuals responsible for these outbreaks are uncertain, making them hard to know how to prevent.
- Hence: conspiracy theories.
The most recent CDC report (December 21) counts 53 cases of E. coli 026 from 9 states, with 20 hospitalizations.
The FDA reports (December 22) that there are 5 more recent cases of illness caused by a different type of E. coli 026 among people eating at Chipotle.
Food Safety News summarizes the previous Chipotle outbreaks.
- Seattle: July 2015, 5 people sick from E. coli O157:H7, from unknown food source.
- Simi Valley, CA: August 2015, more than 230 sick from norovirus (most likely from an ill worker).
- Minnesota: August and September 2015, 64 people sick from Salmonella Newport (tomatoes?).
- Boston: December 2015, at least 136 people sick from norovirus.
- Nearly 500 people have become ill after eating in a Chipotle since July this year.
- Stock prices are down 30 percent from a high of $757.77 in August.
The conspiracy theory
I don’t think so.
You don’t need conspiracy theories to explain poorly designed and executed food safety procedures.
What is to be done?
The New York Times attributes the inability to identify the food source to Chipotle’s record-keeping:
One of the challenges here has been that we have been able to identify the restaurants where people ate, but because of the way Chipotle does its record-keeping, we have been unable to figure out what food is in common across all those restaurants,” said Dr. Ian Williams, chief of the outbreak response and prevention branch of the C.D.C.
That, at least, should be an easy fix.
For the rest, Chipotle has initiated a new food safety program, and has recruited a leading food safety expert, Mansour Samadpour, to set it up. I met Samadpour at Earthbound Farms when he was helping that company prevent further problems after the spinach outbreak of 2006. He knows what he his doing.
Chipotle needs to follow his advice—in letter and in spirit.
Food safety lawyer Bill Marler advises Chipotle to follow a 12-step program to create an effective culture of food safety from top down and bottom up within the company. For example, he advises the company’s CEO, Steve Ells to say:
- It is time to have a culture of food safety added to the “integrity” of the food. I have now learned that bacteria and viruses do not care a whit if my food’s ingredients are organic, sustainable, non-GMO and humanely raised.
- I am going to hire a vice-president of Food Safety. That person will report directly to me and to the Board of Directors. Like Dave Theno being brought in to address the Jack-in-the-Box crisis of 1993, this person will have the resources and access to decision makers to create a culture of food safety from the top down.
- The company’s new mantra – “Safe Food with Integrity” – will be completely transparent and shared with all – including our competitors.
Will Ells take his advice? I hope so.
