Chipotle is still struggling to bring back customers to its restaurants after a food safety scare last year.
The burrito chain said Tuesday that sales fell 21.9 percent at established restaurants during the third quarter, worse than the 18.3 percent drop Wall Street analysts expected, according to FactSet. It's the fourth straight quarter of sales declines for the company after an E. coli outbreak last year sickened some customers.

Police in New Hampshire say a 7-year-old girl inserted coins into a toy dispenser and received a plastic capsule filled with medications for blood pressure and kidney stones. Rochester Police Capt. Jason Thomas said Tuesday the girl put a quarter into the machine for the third time at a pizza restaurant on Friday when it spit out a container that had at least three pills where the toy should have been. Thomas says two of the pills were blood pressure medication; the third was a capsule of medication to treat kidney stones.
If Vice President Biden was serious about taking Trump "behind the gym," it sounds like Donald Trump is in.
Rounding out a full day of rallies in Florida Tuesday night, the Republican presidential nominee went off on a tangent against Biden, calling him "Mr. Tough Guy" for comments the VP made last week that if it were high school he'd take Trump "behind the gym."

The inbound upper level of the George Washington Bridge was closed by an immigrant rights protest on Wednesday morning, snarling traffic on one of the region's most important crossings at the height of rush hour.
Delays at the bridge for traffic heading into New York from New Jersey ran at least an hour; traffic cameras showed bumper-to-bumper traffic barely inching along.
The protesters apparently chained themselves across the roadway to block traffic, unfurling large banners in an attempt to spread their message. One banner appeared to read "Resist, Organized, Act Up!"

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has maintained for three years that he didn't know anything about the George Washington Bridge lane closures either before they happened or while they were going on. But that story has come under withering assault in a Newark courtroom in the criminal trial of two former Christie allies. Prosecutors say the lanes were closed in September 2013 to punish Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, a Democrat who refused to endorse the Republican governor. Four people, including one of his closest political advisers, have testified under oath that Christie knew more than he said he did.
Islamic State militants have been going door to door in villages south of Mosul, ordering people at gunpoint on a mileslong trek into the city and using them as human shields as the extremists prepare to defend it from Iraqi forces, according to residents swept up in the forced evacuations.
Witnesses described scenes of chaos over the past week as hundreds of people were ordered out of their homes without having time to pack and driven north across the Ninevah plains toward the heavily-fortified city, where IS has been preparing for a climactic showdown.
Two young children are fortunate to be alive, police said Wednesday, after they were thrown clear and survived an accident that killed four people including their mothers on a river rapids ride at a popular theme park in Australia.
Two men and two women died in the accident on Tuesday at Dreamworld, a park on Queensland state's Gold Coast, Queensland Police Assistant Commissioner Brian Codd said.
The Thunder River Rapids ride whisks people in circular rafts along a fast-moving, artificial river, with a conveyor belt helping move the rafts through the water. Closed-circuit television footage showed the ride was coming to its conclusion when two rafts collided, Codd said.
In 1973, New York City school teacher Annette Gandy Fortt was looking for a decent place to live. A listing for an apartment in a building owned by Donald Trump's father, Fred, caught her eye — but she says the super told her there were no units available.
"I was black," Fortt said recently. "I was not wanted."
As NBC News reports, after Fortt was turned away from the Queens apartment building twice, the New York City Human Rights Commission sent a white person to the property to apply for an apartment — and the tester was offered the apartment, according to court papers.
