Matthew Maksymec, E. coli Victim, Speaks Out

According to CBS Chicago, Matthew Maksymec thinks may have come from a few bites of a bad burrito.

Maksymec says he ate a burrito June 4, purchased from Burritos Mexicanos on Saint Charles Road in Lombard. It’s the same restaurant now closed after the DuPage County Health Department launched an E. coli investigation.  Maksymec says his stomach started cramping about three days after he ate the burrito.  He says he struggled to make it through graduation at Willowbrook High.
