A “300-calorie,” gut-busting burrito earns Chipotle a new lawsuit

Their suit stems from one sign in particular, seen independently by the plaintiffs in Chipotle restaurants around Los Angeles. The advertisement shows a picture of a brimming burrito and says: “CHORIZO BURRITO: Try our new deliciously seasoned, perfectly grilled spicy chicken and pork sausage in a burrito with white rice, black beans, fresh tomato salsa, and sprinkle of cheese.” The bottom of the sign reads “300 Calories.”The trio claim they understood the sign to mean that the whole burrito was 300 calories, given the picture and the detailed description. However, according to Chipotle’s own nutrition information, a single serving of the chorizo alone is 300 calories. When it’s wrapped into a burrito with all the fixings listed on the sign, the total calorie count comes out to 1,055—more than half of a standard 2,000 calorie per day diet.
