This week, Chipotle Mexican Grill confirmed that all 56 D-FW-area restaurants are selling carnitas once again. The Denver-based company pulled carnitas -- which are shreds of browned pork -- from the menu earlier this year because its pork supplier didn't meet Chipotle's standards.

According to a statement, pigs used in Chipotle products must live outdoors or in a "deeply-bedded barn" and cannot have ingested antibiotics. 

"The decision to stop selling Carnitas in many of our restaurants was an easy one," said Steve Ells, founder, chairman and co-CEO at Chipotle, in a statement. "We simply will not compromise our high standards for animal welfare." 

The company also made headlines in April for announcing it would only sell food free of genetically engineered ingredients.

For those missing Chipotle's popular pork tacos, The Dallas Morning News printed a carnitas recipe during the shortage. Carnitas have now returned to 90 percent of the Chipotles nationwide and all of the North Texas restaurants.
