POWELL, OH (WCMH) — The Delaware General Health District says more than 500 people have approached them about a possible foodborne illness outbreak at the Chipotle at 9733 Sawmill Parkway.

Many people report that they became violently ill after eating there between July 26-July 30. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and/or fever. 

The restaurant voluntarily closed Monday, and re-opened Tuesday afternoon, after health inspectors failed to uncover anything they said could have contributed to making diners sick.

The health district said Wednesday that staff members have interviewed more than 200 people. Stool samples and food samples have been delivered to the Ohio Department of Health, which will test the stool samples for for salmonella, shigella, E. Coli, and Norovirus. They will test food samples for these four diseases, as well as bacillus cereus.
