    A Chipotle on Michigan Ave. was closed by city officials Monday after an inspection revealed fruit flies at the restaurant, according to a report from the city's department of public health.

    The restaurant, located at 316 N. Michigan Ave., failed the city’s Monday inspection because it wasn’t able to correct the fly problem discovered last week, the report stated. The location's license was suspended.

    An inspection revealed “over 30 flying insects on walls and ceiling," according to the report. It also recommended the facility consult with a pest control company.

    “The restaurant was closed yesterday after regular inspections found an operating issue,” Chipotle Communications Director Chris Arnold said in an emailed statement Monday. “The issue has been addressed, and the restaurant was re-inspected this afternoon and cleared to re-open. It is back to business as usual."

    When asked about the flying insects city officials said they observed in the restaurant, Arnold said in an email, “The issue has been addressed and the restaurant was re-inspected this afternoon and cleared to re-open.”
