Lake Wildwood, CA — A late night patrol by a Lake Wildwood security vehicle caught employees of restaurant chain Chipotle Mexican Grill dumping approximately 200 lbs of ground beef near the spillway of the lake. Laboratory tests have confirmed the beef tested positive for multiple strains of Escherichia coli otherwise known as E. coli. This included the 0157: H7 strain that produces the Shiga toxin which is classified as a bioterrorism agent. The employees were detained and are currently being held at Wayne Brown Correctional Facility.
We were granted special access to the prisoners for a quick interview.
“Chipotle didn’t want another scare so we were ordered to make the infected meat disappear quick,” Jose told us while his eyes darted around the visiting area.
“We had a friend who wanted to go swimming at Lake Wildwood and they wouldn’t let him through the gates. They said he wasn’t on the list but he thought it was because of his brown skin. After that, he would rant about those “racist mother******s” so it was only natural for us to dump the beef there.” Jorge added as he checked the bottom of the table for gum or hidden weapons.
Local residents have expressed outrage over the incident and are waiting for the Lake to receive the all clear from daily testing. We found a local man parked on the spillway obviously in deep thought as he looked out upon the lake.
“I have to honest, this lake has been tarnished long before Chipotle dumped beef into it. When I was younger we used to watch turds come back up from the pipes running down to the waste treatment plant. I’m not sure what caused it but I have no doubt because one had a peanut in it.” Norm lamented while kicking a small stone into the water. We detected a smell from downstream that indeed smelled of human waste.
