Is norovirus on the loose again?

Food can get contaminated with norovirus when people have stool or vomit on their hands and touch food.

A Chipotle restaurant in Sterling, Virginia, was shut down after at least 13 customers reported being sick after eating at the fast-casual chain.

According to multiple reports on crowdsourcing website iwaspoisoned.com, customers reported having symptoms including fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea after eating at the restaurant from Friday, July 14, to Sunday, July 16.

The symptoms are consistent with norovirus, a highly contagious virus that can easily contaminate food, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s the same virus that affected Chipotle restaurants as recently as last year, including a Boston location that closed because of it.

“We are working with health authorities to understand what the cause may be and to resolve the situation as quickly as possible,” Jim Marsden, Chipotle's executive director of food safety, told Business Insider. “The reported symptoms are consistent with norovirus. Norovirus does not come from our food supply, and it is safe to eat at Chipotle.”

This Fast-Food Chain Is Linked to 40 Cases of Food Poisoning

Forty people have reported illnesses after eating at an Arby's in Springfield, Ill. since Feb. 15, the Sangamon County Department of Public Health confirmed to two local news stations, NewsChannel 20 and WAND 17.

Officials first visited the Arby's restaurant on Feb. 23 after calls were made to the health department. They then returned on Feb. 24 as the store was closed for deep cleaning. They also visited again the next day, still finding issues, but are still unable to pinpoint the exact cause of the food poisonings. (Related: McDonald's Is Making These 8 Major Upgrades.)

The health and safety violations found on the first visit include: improper temperatures, as some corned beef, turkey, and ham were stored at temperatures around 45-48 degrees Farhenheit when they should be kept at 45 or below improper date marking was found for brisket, gyro meat, and corned beef that should have been discarded the day before cleanliness issues, as the top of the oven, which is used to store utensils, was visibly soiled with dust and debris and management errors.

Even after the deep cleaning on Feb. 24, the department still found temperature issues during a visit the next day as "sauces were observed with internal temperatures of 48-50 degrees in the top of the prep cooler," health officials say. At this time, the investigation is still ongoing.

In other food safety news, the CDC just linked specific Hispanic-style soft, and fresh cheeses to a multi-state Listeria outbreak that sent seven people to the hospital. To get all the latest food safety news delivered right to your email inbox every day, sign up for our newsletter!
