On this brand new episode of Eating Matters, solo host Jenna Liut is taking on Chipotle Mexican Grill, who has been dealing with a spate of food poisoning outbreaks since this past summer.  Until recently, Chipotle has been seen by many as the “darling” of the restaurant industry – championing fresh, local ingredients and sustainably-raised meat. In doing so, Chipotle has managed to do the seemingly impossible – make a national fast-food chain with more than 1,900 locations – feel healthy and wholesome.  Their tagline, “food with integrity,” helped the company reach a market valuation of nearly $24 billion.  Jenna welcomes two food safety and food law experts, Bill Marler and Michael Roberts, to the the show to dig into what exactly has been going on with the chain and what the potential repercussions are from a legal and regulatory standpoint.
