Chipotle Tumbles: "Supergirl" Actor Says He "Almost Died" After Eating At Burrito Chain

Chipotle stock tumbled on Monday on renewed food quality concerns after “Supergirl” actor Jeremy Jordan blamed the burrito chain for making him severely sick. The actor, who plays Winn Schott the show, posted an Instagram story on Thursday from his hospital bed, saying that “the food did not agree with me and I almost died,” according to People.

“I know I’ve advocated for them in the past, but they’re terrible,” says Jordan, who looks fairly pale laying in a hospital bed and showing viewers the IV in his arm.

“I, as you can see, am in the hospital and I have fluids in my arm because the food did not agree with me and I almost died.... I just want to thank my wife for being amazing and talking me off the ledge when I was on the phone about to die and Chris Wood for holding my hair back metaphorically,” he says. “I love all of you; thank you so much. It’s been a night.”

According to People, Jordan, 32, who was set to perform at a ‘salute to Broadway’ concert in Houston on Friday, says he hopes he is okay to go through with the show and has yet to update fans on his current status.

CMG shares fell as much as 4.4% in early trading on Monday, extending what has been a painful rout this year. Two years ago,

The incident will likely renew concerns about food safety at Chipotle, which has struggled to bounce back from an E. coli crisis in 2015 that sickened tens of customers.  The company had begun to restore its reputation in the past year, but a norovirus incident in Virginia and a viral video of mice at a Dallas location sparked a fresh round of negative headlines.

Chipotle also suffered a data breach earlier this year, an incident that hurt its earnings and contributed to another stock slump. This year’s hurricanes rocked Chipotle as well: It had 425 restaurants in the direct path of the storms.

Concerns about Jordan's complaint going viral, Chipotle responded to the actor's claims with the following statement to People:

We are sorry to hear that Jeremy is sick and have attempted to get in touch with him directly regarding where and when he ate so we can look into this. We take all claims seriously, but at this time we can’t confirm any link to Chipotle. We are always committed to making things right for our guests and will do the same for Jeremy when we are able to reach him.”

If the stock price reaction to the denial is any indication, Chipotle will have to try much harder...

Snowflake X can't cook and must dine out/celebrate/party/etc. all year long.

This poor degenerate will most likely never know what it is to be normal, much less what common sense is.

I guess that's what you become when you're so entitled and infatuated with yourself...

The first thing you would think of is unsanitary employees, but upon a closer look it doesn't hold up. Out of the thousands of fast food chain outlets, why are their employees so bad at sanitation? Given that these places all hire anyone who is breathing, the bar is set pretty low. Here in the SF Bay we have Taqueria's and burrito joints ALL over the place, rarely an outbreak, and a lot of these places are real dives. The only conclusion is someone has it out for Chipotle.

If he can't back this up, I hope CMG dues his ass out of existence.

I'm making over $15k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do...  http://disq.us/url?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.Jobzon3.com%3Ab8eR_DQLwGRPVGtFvv...

If one detoxes off opiates, all kinds of things happen.  Nausea, vomiting, hot/cold, diarrhea, turkey flesh, etc.  With all the movie/TV stars partying on god knows what, all the time, one can not just assume this guy has been poisoned from a Chipotle burrito.  People (employees/celebrities) do some fucked up stuff..... all the time.  So when does GaGa go to rehab, and when does Johnny Depp either bleed out from esophageal varicies and drop dead, or go to rehab as well?  Stupid usually fixes itself.

most of the local joints i go to in sf are family owned with a kitchen filled with plump grandmother types......if they kill their customers they lose their livelyhood. chipolte workers HATE their jobs. check out all the videos on youtube.

This all started as soon as Chipotle came out non-gmo a couple of years back. Think the monsanto crowd.

jonjon831983's picture

I agree and have thought this.

 

Even heard on radio a few months back there was some suspicious this was a malicious attack; something to do with the timing of the outbreaks not consistent with the typical seasonal appearance of the organisims.

 

I passed by a CMG earlier today and lineups were there still.

Speaking of shit, this article is Bullshit!

Why?

This happens thousands of times a day in the US from Pizza Hut, BK, McCrap, Jack all over the Box, Costco snack bar, etc.

But because those victims aren't Free Mason psychopath MSM poster boys, no one is the wiser.

The GMO industry has it out for anyone pushing "Organic"...GMO conglomerates are buying up organic companies, then changing the product lines, they are buying shelf space to drown out any organic food and pushing back hard.

Even while "demand" (in a free market) should determine who loses, we see a vastly different picture in our Oligarchy ti's of thee.

I've tried Chipotle in Van a few times and never went back....

the few times I did try, each time, it was a bunch of Mexican immigrants (their race doesn't matter; what matters is I don't try Mexicans and Canadians necisarily view food safety the same way)...

and the went they slopped and threw and manhandled all the beefs and chickens and plopped them in tortillas and messily rolled them up...

 

there was such much emphasis on speed that it looked disgusting. no wonder ppl get food poisoning there.

I wonder if Chipolte is hiring infected illegals and hepatitis-ravaged rapefugees?

 

That might explain it.

Far be it from me to defend Chipotle but exactly how the fuck does this guy know that eating there is what made him sick?  Just because you eat something and feel bad 30 minutes later doesn't mean it's that exact food that made you sick.

If you eat something ( usually cream based) and in a half hour are violently throwing up you are probably experiencing Staphylococcus food poisoning. Not deadly but quite often unpleasant. Shigella and salmonella have longer incubation periods based on the amount of the offender you have consumed. Shigella has a very low infective dose and that is one mofo you don't want to encounter. Salmonella can produce a chronic condition in some people.

If ca be VERY challenging to find the sources of these epidemics and false accusations abound. Cyclospora in berries and cryptosporidium in cattle farms for example.

Keep healthy and try to negotiate this new microbial world we have created.

Thanks, Miffed.  Was hoping you might chime in on this subject.

We have to run our diswasher at home, 2 to 3 times per week, because we mostly cook and eat at home.

we run it every night 75% full, my wife stays a home and does the cooking, granola bars, etc

When I used to travel a lot and if the eating establishment gave me cause for concern, I would order a double shot of whiskey with my meal if they served whiskey, but as a backup I kept a flask in my packpack.

This sort of internal sanitation proceedure served me well at many dodgey eateries. Never got sick.

Umm, actually I'd call that a pretty good indication.  One thing follows another in close sequence, it is reasonable to assume one led to the other, as a working hypothesis.

For example, you get your annual flu shot, and drop dead 5 minutes later.  What sort of fucking idiot would not make the connection?  The MIC, that's who.

I wonder how many rats fell from the ceiling onto his food while he was dining at Chipotle?

 

Rodents fall from ceiling at Dallas Chipotle

 

A cellphone captured some disturbing video from inside a Chipotle Restaurant in Dallas, Texas, showing multiple rodents falling from the ceiling. A spokesman from the company called the incident isolated and rare as steps were immediately being taken to address the situation. (great video!)

Some folks, (like Monsanto Corporate Officers) don't know/think that Roundup™ is dangerous.
