7:12 am
>> i'm sorry for the people who got sick. they're having a tough time, and i feel terrible about that. we're doing a lot to rectify this and to make sure this doesn't happen again. >> let's start in boston andnd work our way back totohe pacific northwest. the norovirus is what sickened these people. 120 people up in boston. the restaurant is closed down. they've been issued some violations. the cleanup is underway. are you convinced you've contained this now, that more people won't contain being sick? >> well, in regard to the e. coli, you know, there was one particular period of time, from mid-october until early november that appeared -- that's when the outbreak occurrrr, and the reporting of the illnesses came out over a lock period of time. >> so you're saying in boston you could have more cases reported. >> well, with the norovirus, probably, you've heard that this is the extent of it. but it's a very -- it's a
7:13 am
passed and spreads very, very quickly, from pepeon to person. >> you'rconvinced when you reopen the store near boston, people will l t be getting sick if they go b bk to eat there? >> when we reopen, the restaurant will be completely sanitized and every employee will have been tested and assured they do not have norovirus. >> now let's go back to the pacific northwest. >> yeah. >> the e. coli outbreaktarted early october. dozens of people got sick. it's my understanding that after weeks of investigating this, the fda has not found an exact source of that e. coli bacteria, is that true? >> it's true. and we have had teams looking at this. we closed our restauraras out of an abundance of caution and tested all the ingredients, surfaces. thousands and thousands of tests, matt, and they all came back negative for e. coli. so if there is a silver lining
7:14 am
looked at every single ingredient that we use at chipotle. we use 64 ingredients that we bring in, from farm through the distribution network, how we prepare the food, how we cook the food, and how we serve the food. we've had a team of epidemiologists and food safety experts to raise our zarnds from the already industry norms that e -- >> y y call it a silver lining. i think it might be troubling. if you can't identify the source, how do you eliminate it in the future? >> well, unfortunately what got people sick was no longer in thee system by the time they even showed symptoms. so unfortunately you'll not find that. but the silver lining comment is that it has caused us to put in place practices that our epidemiologigi expert says will put us 10 toto5 years ahead of industry noror.
7:15 am
safest restaurant to eat at. >> a lot of damage has been done, mr. ells. stock prices droch edpped, double digits since early november. that's a big part of it. first, financially, can the company recover? >> certainly. that's not what we're thinking about now. we're thinking about the safety and quality of our ingredients. to put in place practices that will not enable this to happen again. practices that are so far above industry norms t tay, we will be the safest place to eat. that is our commitment. much like food with integrity, to bring the best ingredientto fast food, we have practices that will make it the safest place to e e. >> finally, real quickly, there are critics who say, mr. ells, this company started with a great idea and grew too fast. that it took off at a rate where
7:16 am
control. even thingthat would affect the public health. is there some merit to that claim? >> i don't think so because if you look at the quality of our ingredients over me, we've made a great strides in n urcing better quality foods. more organics. more local and sustainably raised foods. this was a very unfortunate incident, and i'm dely sorry this happened. but the prwcedures we're putting in place today are so above industry norms that we are going to be e e safest place to eat. >> steve ells, good of you to join us this morning. >> matt, thank you. >> i know you've got app awful lot going on. >> thank you. now, we go to colorado and a fiery day in court for the man accused of killing a police officer and two others at a planned parenthood last month. robert dear in court to be formally charged had several outbursts, including telling the court he is guilty. >> the truth, huh? kill the babies, that's what planned parenthood d/fs.
