DOJ Takes Rare Step In Probing Single Chipotle Restaurant

January 6, 2016 – Media Mention

David Rosenfield was quoted in Law360 about the federal criminal investigation of a norovirus outbreak at a Chipotle restaurant in California. "I do think it's unusual to see the DOJ here, in the sense that the criminal [food illness] cases that I've seen have all involved the widespread distribution of food in interstate commerce, like the PCA and Jensen cases," Rosenfield said. "You would normally expect a case where there's mishandled food — where maybe the workers at the restaurant haven't cleaned up properly — to be handled by state or local authorities."
