Yuck

Woman demands free Chipotle burritos after hospitalization - Business Insider

Quote:
A 19-year-old woman who was hospitalized with E. Coli after eating at Chipotle has sued the chain with a highly unusual request: free food coupons.

The woman's lawyer, Bill Marler, said he was shocked by the request.

"I have being doing these kinds of cases for 20 years and sued every restaurant chain you can imagine and I have never seen people willing to go back to a restaurant under those circumstances," Marler told Business Insider.

Marler, who declined to identify his client's name, said Chipotle was "very accommodating" with the woman's request.

The company settled the case recently, paying her an undisclosed amount of money in addition to sending her about three dozen free burrito coupons.

Chipotle is very popular with kids from 19-25. Very, very popular. I think if she got sick and wanted life long burritos...sure. Why not?

Get sick at a restaurant, then sue to demand MORE of the food that made you sick in the first place?

Just cant get my head around that one.

She got cash also. Maybe she wants to give the coupons to people she does not like.

Eat bad food somewhere or at your own house, blame an easy target like Chipoltle. Somebody needs to put that place out of it's misery.

Get a food-born illness, blame Chipotle.
Become morbidly obese, blame McDonald's.

Because, you know, society forces you to eat those things 3 times a day, 7 days a week.

She could just go to a different Chipotle. It's not like they all have e.coli. I'm surprised she isn't turned off by the taste now, though. That's a typical reaction to a food you associate with becoming violently ill.

I think she knows she got the E. coli from a different source and sued Chipotle because they have deep pockets. She could have easily gotten it from any number of vectors, including improper food preparation in her own kitchen. Perhaps she was in a hurry, prepared undercooked hamburger at home, ate at Chipotle soon afterward, then blamed them for her illness. Cha-ching!

It's very difficult to locate the exact time and source of food poisoning. People can say, "X caused me food poisoning at Y time," but that's nearly impossible to determine for certain, because people digest food at different rates, we eat many varieties of food, the source of contamination is hard to locate, and stomach problems are vague and can be caused by many different things, including causes not even related to the stomach itself.
