According to the Ohio Department of Health, the case in Ohio involves a 25-year-old man who ate at a Chipotle in Akron. This incident happened on October 31, according to ODH spokesperson Melanie Amato.

“We’re looking into it,” Amato said. “There’s no concern at this time that it’s spreading.”

Sixteen ill people have been hospitalized, the CDC says. There are no deaths.

“The epidemiologic evidence available at this time suggests that a common meal item or ingredient served at Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants in several states is a likely source of this outbreak.”
