Chipotle is giving away a freebie after the restaurant closed for part of the day for a food safety meeting.
The Mexican restaurant chain’s website has instructions on how you can text to receive a coupon for a free burrito.
Go to www.chipotle.com/raincheck and follow the instructions. You’ll be asked to text the word “raincheck” to 888-222. You’ll get a message back with a link that takes you to a form to leave your name and zip code.
The offer is available Feb. 8 until 6 p.m.
Once you fill that out, you’ll get a screen that says, “We’ll text you your free burrito in the next few days.”
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. Coli-related illness linked to the chain’s restaurants. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 55 people were infected in 11 states (California, Delaware, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington.)
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.
