Chipotle has now issued this statement: "Currently, through a supplier, Chipotle purchases plastic cutlery made using Cereplast Compostables resin for its one restaurant in Millbrae, Calif., to comply with a local ordinance.
In a Dec. 15 press release, which was not reviewed or
approved by Chipotle, Cereplast misstated the nature of the relationship, stating that "a system-wide rollout of up to 800 Chipotle locations is expected in the near future." Chipotle currently has no
plans to expand its relationship with Cereplast."--Karlene Lukovitz
