NEW BRITAIN – According to The Hals Scoop, a New Britain based Hals Academy newspaper, Super Buffet in New Britain has closed due to the proprietor using cat meat. The article goes on to say “Super Buffet is closed because they are suspected of serving cat meat and rat bones as a substitute for chicken.
According to Yelp.com (a restaurant review site), this buffet was shut down on December 23rd, 2013 (it hasn’t been reopened)
We reached out to the New Britain Health Dept. and they said the claims are not true and that the restaurant just shut down due to poor sales. The article has gone viral locally as many fake and or false accusations are spread on social media.
The Central Connect Post reached out to Leona C. Clerkin, Principal of H.A.L.S. Academy. When asked why the article was published without review and verification by staff she said “no comment” and hung up.
