Chipotle is opening at 3 p.m. Monday after workers spent the morning in food safety meetings. Chiptole organized the meetings after a multi-state outbreak of e.

The Food and Drug Administration was unable to identify the source of the outbreak.

The illness can cause fever, abdominal pain, bruises or bleeding from the nose and mouth, and fatigue.
