Possible Food Poisoning Outbreak at Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill in Danbury, CT

Officials are investigating a possible food poisoning outbreak at Barbarie’s Black Angus Grill at 5 Eagle Road in Danbury, Connecticut, according to news report. People started getting sick after they allegedly ate at that facility last weekend.

The City of Danbury Health Department worked with staff at the restaurant this week to see if they could find the source of the illnesses, but they aren’t sure that the illnesses can be linked to the restaurant. According to the New Haven Register, Lisa Morrissey, Danbury Health and Human Services Director said “Investigators have not determined that Black Angus was the source of any of the complainants’ food poisoning.”

She continued, “Black Angus has been very compliant and I know they did their own deep clean of the restaurant and are talking to their own staff about some food handling practices.”

The first reports of illness were received on Wednesday, December 26, 2018. Officials would not say how many people have been sickened, and we don’t know what symptoms those who are sick are experiencing. That time frame is typical for most types of foodborne illness. People start getting sick up to 3 days after exposure for Salmonella infections, and 4 to 7 days for E. coli infections.

The restaurant closed voluntarily after reports of illness started coming in, and will reopen today, December 28, 2018. Inspection records indicate that the facility has passed easily in recent months, with a score of 91 at the last inspection on August 15, 2018.

It is a fact that most food poisoning outbreaks are linked to restaurants and delis. A 2013 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found the 68% of all outbreaks were linked to those facilities.
