retail news in context, analysis with attitude

On Friday, in a story about Chipotle having to adjust its commitment to local sourcing of fresh produce because of the E. coli outbreak that has taken place in a number of markets around the US and sickened dozens of people, it was stated that the company's goal was to "serve vegetables that are grown within 350 million miles of individual restaurants."

As numerous MNB readers pointed out,that's not exactly setting the bar very high.

The actual distance is 350 miles.

Apologies for the goof. Though for Chipotle to resolve its E coli issues, 350 million miles may have to be its new standard.
