The complaint alleges that defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Chipotle’s purported improvements in its restaurants’ food saftey policies were inadequate; (ii) accordingly, Chipotle’s quality controls were still not in compliance with applicable consumer and workplace safety regulations; (iii) in turn, Chipotle’s quality controls remained inadequate to safeguard consumer and employee health; and (iv) as a result of the foregoing, Chipotle’s public statements were materially false and misleading.
