Agriculture Commissioner's Beef With Chipotle

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- The Texas Agriculture commissioner has some major beef with Chipotle.

The commissioner says he has a problem that the founder of the mexican grill imports grass-fed beef from Australia.

He says it's "misguided" and "irresponsible" for the founder to believe that Australian meat is raised more responsibly than cattle in Texas.

The founder of Chipotle defended his reasoning last month to the Huffington Post. He says Chipotle was having difficulty getting beef it prefers from U.S. producers because the lingering drought.
