i won't darken your thread again.
See? This is exactly why I don't want to get into this type of discussion.
You ask about legal stuff involving sushi, I insist on NOT becoming involved in what ALWAYS turns out to be a peeing contest on forums and now you've felt insulted because I won't discuss that with you.
The short version of what you're looking for is; there are signs in every restaurant I've gone in that say; "There are health risks in eating underdone or raw foods. You accept the risk by eating them...yada yada yada...."
If someone were to eat raw fish from anywhere, they automatically accept the risks involved. Many types of fish are known to have parasites and have a history of parasitic infections to humans when not processed through a freezer at the proper temps and timings.
Eating raw fish that has not been frozen at Minus 4 degrees fahenheit for a minimum of 7 days has a risk of being infected by parasites.
I'm sorry man, but I've already been there and done that with the arguments over legalities of sushi.
It's why I won't get involved with a discussion of that nature in a thread clearly titled to discuss the "How to" of sushi making.
Past arguments got heated, rude, angering, frustrating, idiotic and pointless.
I'm simply NOT doing it again.
Your question is innocent. Then my answer is innocent. THEN, someone else with a chip on thier shoulder gets in and starts an argument about the legalities being discussed.
I'm just not going there. Been there, done that. It's pointless.
My intention was not to insult you. It was only to make it clear that I won't get involved again in any type of legal argument or discussion about sushi.
I'm sorry you felt insulted.
