The federal government interviewed more Chipotle employees this week in two dozen locations in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. Earlier this year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement launched an audit on the company's employee records, resulting in the firing of approximately 500 illegal aliens in Minnesota, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Chipotle received advanced notice of the employee interviews and asked its employees to cooperate with federal investigators.

According to Chipotle's attorney, the continued investigation does not necessarily represent a broader investigation into the company. ICE officials would not comment.
