Could Chipotle's Problems Be Food Fraud?


Imagine if Chipotle's recent E. Coli problems are a result of food fraud. Imagine if a rogue supplier has knowingly or recklessly supplied Chipotle with E. Coli tainted ingredients as a way of saving money hoping that no one would trace it back to them. As of today, Chipotle, the CDC and food safety experts are puzzled. We are almost 2 months after the first cases of illness struck and the experts have still not identified the root cause or where responsibility for these illnesses lies.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Imagine if Chipotle's recent E. Coli problems are a result of food fraud. Imagine if a rogue supplier has knowingly or recklessly supplied Chipotle with E. Coli tainted ingredients as a way of saving money hoping that no one would trace it back to them. As of today, Chipotle, the CDC and food safety experts are puzzled. We are almost 2 months after the first cases of illness struck and the experts have still not identified the root cause or where responsibility for these illnesses lies.

Even if Food Fraud is not behind this outbreak, imagine for one second if it were. Recall how melamine added to milk in China killed 6 babies and sickened over 300,000? Do you really trust every single person who is handling food and food ingredients in the world?

There is a huge risk presented by food fraud, and with a handful of exceptions, virtually nothing is being done about it. I often feel like I am trying to climb the highest mountain in the world. I have a few trusted and committed colleagues and partners who see the problem and are willing to do something about it. The general consumer public is largely unaware of the problem, and many, if not most in the food industry are covering up what they know to be a high risk, hoping beyond hope, that it doesn't hit them. In legal terms that is called willful blindness and exposes those being willfully blind to liability.

Sadly, people will have to get sick or worse yet, die, because the food industry is largely failing to address the problem. My quest to change that will never end, but let's hope that those who are trying to stop the problem of food fraud are successful before those trying to commit or conceal it hurt or kill us.
