The national food safety law firm Pritzker Hageman has filed a second E. coli lawsuit against Chipotle in Ohio. The lawsuit was filed November 6, 2020, in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, on behalf of a teenage girl who contracted an E. coli infection after consuming burrito bowls, containing romaine lettuce and other ingredients, she purchased on September 22, 2020, and on September 24, 2020, from a Chipotle restaurant in Columbus.

The suit comes about one week after our E. coli lawyers sued Chipotle on behalf of another teenage girl who ordered a salad bowl containing the same ingredients from the same location. Our E. coli lawyers are investigating if these illnesses are related to either of the ongoing multistate E. coli outbreaks for which food sources have not yet been determined. Both of these outbreaks include cases in Ohio and illnesses linked to food purchased at restaurants.
According to the November 6 complaint, about three days after our client purchased and ate a burrito bowl from a Chipotle on Polaris Parkway in Columbus, she developed severe diarrhea that turned bloody after 24 hours. She sought medical treatment and tests confirmed she had an E. coli O157: H7 infection. On October 1, she was admitted to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, where she remained until October 5.
