People against pork have had a major victory thanks to Maxim senior editor Seth Porges.
It turns out Chipotle has been cooking "a small amount of bacon" with their pinto beans over the years. While they make note of the beans secret ingredient on their website, there is no indication of this on the burrito chains in-store menu.
Porges, who does not eat pork for "for religious and cultural reasons", recently made the shocking discovery and was appalled! So appalled he immediately took to Twitter, writing:
"After more than decade of ordering Chipotle pinto beans, I was told they have bacon. As non-pork eater, I feel ill."
"Was shocked to discover Chipotle puts bacon in their pinto beans. Why is it not posted on menu?"
Surprisingly, his message was heard loud and clear. After emailing the company to complain, CEO Steve Ells responded immediately and informed the Maxim editor Chipotle would change its menu to include a mention of the bacon in its pinto beans.
Following the quick exchange, Porges tweeted:
"Razor quick response from @chipotlemedia, whose exec called to discuss fixes to Pinto/Bacon issue. Will call back ASAP. Thanks guys!"
"Just spoke to head of Chipotle. Said I got them to change menus to say Pinto has bacon! Awesome & nimble response! Thanks"
We really respect Chipotle for responding so quickly and favorably to their customers needs! Bravo!
