    Chipotle's tough year is getting worse after 80 Boston College students became ill with norovirus after eating at a Chipotle restaurant near campus.

    Officials from the Boston Public Health Department confirmed this afternoon that the students were sickened by norovirus.

    “Clinically speaking, these cases have symptoms that are not consistent with E.coli," Dr. Anita Barry, director of Boston Public Health Commission's Infectious Disease Bureau, said. "They are more typical of norovirus.”

    The source of the outbreak is still being investigated.

    A spokesman for the university said authorities focused on the Cleveland Circle Chipotle location. The restaurant is currently closed for the investigation. The 80 students were tested for both E.coli and norovirus, according to a university spokesperson. There have been no hospitalizations at this time, health officials said.

    Chipotle, which has already been dealing with the fallout of a multi-state E.coli outbreak, said that no confirmed cases of E.coli in Boston have been linked to the company.

    "We agree with health officials that it is likely a norovirus, which seems very consistent with the pattern here," Chipotle spokesman Chris Arnold told ABC News in a statement today. "It is important to note that noroviruses are very common, in part because they are so easily transmitted (they can spread through person-to-person contact, on surface areas, or through food or drink). According to the CDC, there are approximately 20 million cases a year, making them the leading cause of gastroenteritis in the U.S."

    Chipotle has been trying to reassure customers after at least 52 people in nine states fell ill in an E.coli outbreak linked to the Mexican chain restaurant. Forty-seven of the 52 people affected reported eating at Chipotle, according to interviews by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Those cases all occurred between Oct. 13 and Nov. 7, according to the company. In addition to temporarily closing 43 restaurants in Washington state and Oregon, Chipotle announced a host of new safety measures including increased testing and training in the wake of the outbreak.



    The company's efforts to increase food safety could also affect Chipotle’s local suppliers. Chipotle spokesman Chris Arnold told ABC News that some local suppliers may not be able to keep up with newly-implemented safety measures.

    “Given the heightened requirements for produce — chiefly the high resolution testing — we believe that some of our local growers will not meet these enhanced standards,” Arnold told ABC News. “We’ll certainly look to work with suppliers that do, and to help others where we can, but at the moment, we aren’t sure what the local program will look like. What we are sure of is that our commitment to using the very best ingredients we can remains as strong as ever.”

    Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University, said that since so many people became sick at once, investigators will likely be looking for a common source for the outbreak.

    "This strongly suggests a common source and that makes the investigation more pointed and more focused," Schaffner explained.

    Early symptoms of both E.coli and norovirus include vomiting, fever and diarrhea.

    You're not missing anything. It's a step up from taco bell and a mile down from just about any mom and pop Mexican restaurant. That shit was American food, not Mexican.

    I kept reading how they only use organic foods from farms they control. Apparently they are not managing that very well.

    Organic is the riskiest for bacteria.

    Like that peanut butter recall a couple years back. The Jiffs and Skippy's of the world were unaffected, it was all that "all-natural" "100% organic" Trader Joe's hippie shit.
