Clover has shut down all of their locations until further notice due to a statewide salmonella outbreak. According to their website, a few of the confirmed cases ate at Clover in recent days. "This is something we take very seriously. Clover has never been responsible for any food poisoning or food borne illness that we know of. That’s because we operate clean and take this sort of thing really really seriously," they write. They'll reopen once they learn more, but in the meantime, find your chickpea fritters someplace else.

Update: Globe health reporter Deborah Kotz has more information about the statewide salmonella outbreak and Clover's precautionary closure on her Daily Dose blog. According to her report, CEO Ayr Muir won't reopen his restaurants until the culprit has been pinpointed by the state health department.

Note: The headline was modified after its initial posting to reflect that the salmonella outbreak is statewide and not specific to a Clover location.
