Well, babe, if you read the article that attie posted the link to you will see that the Aussie health regulations require the asparagus sauce to be tossed after two hours at room temp - the restaurant owners claimed ignorance of the rules but admitted that their practice was to toss it after four hours.

Guess who is going to get the blame for it!

Ignorance is no excuse according to the law, but what I dislike is that if you ask a health inspector a question he/she simply says "Look up the act", they will not offer up any advise nor quote the act to you for fear of litigation.

sorta like a moderater berating a member for possibly asking a question in a post? i'm still not sure if babe's post is a question, or statement of fact.

I'm having a lot of trouble believing the numbers in this article. 9.8 million parts per 10 million, is 98% contamination and 2% food.

I seriously doubt that is even possible.


Be nice to see the actual coroner's report

It does not make me feel good at all that they didn't know the rules, given they are running a restaurant.

Oh. This is about something totally different than what I thought.
I thought the quickest way to kill a restaurant was for someone here to post that they are reusing the customers' salads....
