Statement Regarding October-November 2011 Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Investigation


Irvine, CA - Feb 2, 2012

Fortunately, the CDC said the public is not at any risk and this incident from late last year is completely over.  While the CDC was unable to identify the food source of this outbreak, they believe the problem most likely occurred at a supplier before it was delivered to any food outlet.  Some people who were ill ate at our restaurants, while others did not.  We don’t know what the source of this problem was, but we continue to review our supply procedures for any possible improvement.  If we ever learn of any threat to public safety of course we will be the first to act swiftly with the CDC.  We want to reassure our customers that we take food quality and safety very seriously.
