'Deathly Ill' Chipotle Customer Is Hurting The Stock Yet Again

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE: CMG)'s stock has tumbled nearly 40 percent over the past year and the latest report of another illness linked to its restaurants is likely to put additional pressure on the stock.

Author Eric Van Lustbader, best known for continuing the "Jason Borne" franchise since 2004, tweeted on Thursday that his editor "ended up in urgent care after being deathly ill all night from eating at Chipotle's."

The author added his editor was sent to the emergency room where she spent seven hours. The doctors suspected the illness was related to "unsan food handling."
