Were you hit by the lurgy? Copa the suspect

By johnboy - 14 May 2013 68

2CC is tweeting that 22 people were hospitalised by a food poisoning outbreak over the weekend.

Were you hit? And what have you heard?


UPDATE 14 May 2013 13:10: We’re hearing from multiple sources that the suspect is the new Zeffirellis vehicle Copa. If so one can wonder if Brazilian BBQ is a bit trickier to cook than pasta.


UPDATE 14 May 2013 14:40: Copa have now made a statement on their facebook page:

The Copa has been cooperating with ACT Health to determine the cause of a suspected food health issue over the weekend and once confirmed we will update our patrons with news as soon as possible.

While working with ACT Health, The Copa has taken the opportunity to temporarily close to resolve a ventilation issue that is prohibiting the extraction of smoke caused from cooking over hot coals in the restaurant.

We appreciate your ongoing support and expect to be open as soon as possible.

UPDATE 14 May 2013 17:50: We appear to have a one-restaurant health crisis underway:

I can’t stand Zeffo’s, everything about it, from its business practices to the quality of its food and service, is abhorrent and I don’t know why it seems to be such a popular family diner.

It was awful, but it was the first step up – sort of a half way house – for kiddies when they were in the process of graduating from McDonalds to restaurants.

It’s been named by the Canberra Times now, such a great shame as Brazilian barbecue is such a wondrous thing when done properly, and we desperately needed a churrascaria here.

Reminds me of the Bridesmaids movie, where the girls go out for South American BBQ and end up with food poisioning…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6gChlcBDmQ

Well the reason the eatery hasn’t being name yet, because it wasn’t a an asian or indian restaurant.

That’s just bloody racist of the authorities, innit?
However, the fact that it is located in Dickson may give a clue.

Timmytron 12:08 pm 14 May 13

I’m speculating that it could be the new Brazilian place Copa (going by the fact that it is now closed after supposedly opening briefly over the weekend)

Well, apparently it was in Dickson, so probably was Asian of some sort.

I’ve seen it tweeted by Canberra Times, 666, and now you and 2CC – I’m surprised no one is yet naming the eatery concerned.
