Ottawa Public Health has fined a Chinese food joint after 44 people got sick off a fried rice dish last month, including kids at a day camp.

Lotus Chinese Food Takeout on Fallowfield Rd. in Barrhaven was written up under the Health Promotion and Protection Act and faces two fines with a total maximum penalty of $600.

On July 31, 19 children and eight adults at a Barrhaven day camp suddenly fell ill, requiring paramedics to respond. Six kids were treated at CHEO and released on the same day.
