From food poisoning to E. coli outbreaks, Chipotle has had no shortage of controversy in the past, and it seems that they’re back at it again with another lawsuit.
This time, Los Angeles customers are accusing the chain of false advertising as their in-store advertisements note the chorizo burrito contains 300 calories when, in fact, it has about 950 calories. Three customers have sued the company.
Oh Chipotle, this burrito is not 300 calories. There’s that many in your tortillas. Please don’t lie. ?? pic.twitter.com/VSwNzAoRW2

Chipotle responded to a user’s tweet about the chorizo, stating that the “300 calories” is referring to only the chorizo in the burrito — and not the entire burrito itself.
@LidiyaKravchuk I’m sorry for the confusion, but we’ll make things more clear next time. The 300 calories is for the chorizo. -Gabe
