Bad news for many in America who love putting some of that delicious carnitas into their feeding holes, many Chipotle restaurants have stopped selling it!!

Chipotle stopped serving pork at 1,700 restaurants after a supplier did not live up to the company’s standards.

A spokesman for Chipotle said the company learned of the violation by the supplier on Friday through a routine audit, and did not have a timeline for when carnitas would return to affected stores. No explanation came as to what the violation was but the company has strict animal-welfare expectations for its suppliers and does not allow them to use antibiotics.

I called Palm Desert’s Chipotle and (to your taste bud’s relief) they informed me that they still had carnitas on their menu on Wednesday (if you should hear otherwise about Chipotles in town, let me know) – other Chipotle’s were not so lucky:
