During an investor conference in Florida on Wednesday, Chipotle CEO Steve Ells reported that execs met with officials from the Center for Disease Control last week to discuss the widespread food borne illness, which caused 43 stores to close in November and has infected at least 53 people in nine states thus far.
"I'm hopeful that the CDC will call this over soon," Ells said. "We know that Chipotle is as safe as it's ever been before. We are all very confident that this E. coli outbreak would not happen again."
