CHAIRS HURLED IN SEAFOOD RESTAURANT BRAWL
SEAFOOD restaurants are normally fairly quiet places – unless it is in New York. Last week a brawl broke out in the Seafood City establishment in the Bronx district with diners throwing chairs at one another. A brief video recording of the fight has emerged online. A dozen people can be seen in the clip throwing chairs, using them as shields and throwing punches at each other. The police were called but by the time they arrived the brawlers had vanished. A police spokesman said no formal complaint was made. Alcohol is thought likely to have played a part in fuelling the incident and the restaurant said it now plans to review its security.
WAITROSE RECALLS PRODUCTS AFTER ALLERGY ALERT
THE UK supermarket chain Waitrose this week recalled a top selling frozen fish product because of a possible allergy risk. It is thought a number of its two frozen breaded haddock fillets displayed incorrect allergy information. The packages concerned do not declare that the fillets contain milk and mustard, which could pose a health problem for those with an allergy to the two ingredients.
The company said the recall was being made as a precaution.
NEW OSLO SEAFOOD AIR SERVICE PLANNED
THE international logistics company DHL plans to establish a seafood freight service between Oslo Airport and Lakselv Airport Banak in northern Norway next month. The route will be serviced by an Airbus A300 with a capacity of around 40 tonnes of freight. It will be operated one to several times a week, depending on volume and demand. The seafood, including farmed salmon, will then be flown on to the Far East, including to China and North America.
YOUNG’S DONATION AIDS HOSPITAL
PATIENTS using the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby can now allow visiting relatives to rest more comfortably should they want to stay overnight – thanks to a donation from Young’s Seafood. The joint consultative group at the Young’s factory in Mardsen Road, Grimsby, have donated £250 to go towards buying a sofa bed for the family room at one of the units at the hospital which thanks the company for the donation. Employees at the factory nominate a good cause each month for Young’s to donate to.
