(Reuters) - Health officials shut down a Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc restaurant in Seattle on Thursday after finding “repeated food safety violations,” according to a statement from the Seattle & King County public health department.

The restaurant on Westlake Avenue is one of 17 in the county that had re-opened last month after passing inspections following an E. Coli outbreak.
