    Don't let the headline fool you, altered ingredients led to a person's death. Having to be responsible for overt advertising and fraud is still A-OK and perfectly acceptable since even the article tries to spin it as "negligence" to swap ingredients without bothering to update the damn menu.

    People are supposed to be in a society where they're mindful of and ethical toward others... and if the owner really had a lack of compassion, what sort of psychosis or sociopathy is going on?

    6 years is too lenient given a multitude of factors, the least of which being death since food allergies are not a conspiracy cooked up by liberals. Run a restaurant? Take some responsibility or get out before lives are hurt, which - in that type of service - knowing what the business involves is not a trivial matter. Why not hire a doctor who just graduated with a 1-year certificate in accounting and/or basket weaving that wouldn't know the first thing about the job having to be done? Good grief.

    Manslaughter is the right crime as he didn't deliberately kill them.

    Sad story, but color me confused about this part:

    Despite the fact that a 17-year-old customer had shown symptoms of an allergic reaction to the curry three weeks earlier, Zaman did nothing. The judge presiding over the case scolded the restaurant owner in court for his willful negligence.

    Was this information shared with Zaman?

    It's not. He was using nut paste instead of almond paste so it wasn't nut free when it said it was.

    A Chinese place we have been going too for 20 or more years got new owner. so the chef (the owner) is always cutting corners and such. my wife and I both have problems with grains and we were able to get the food made to what we needed. one time they breaded a dish that was never breaded then the last time they washed the veggies in noddle water and we found small pieces of noodles floating in the dish after we were pretty much done.

    I'm a bit confused by the article as the recipe had always contained nuts (almonds).

    I've got a tree nut allergy and am advised to avoid all nuts and peanuts to be safe (cross reactivity between peanuts and tree nuts is very common).

    This seems to be a problem that's been going around recently. There's this one Chinese restaurant I used to love. Easily had the best food around. But when the old owners sold the business to a new bunch, it became....well...not terrible, but it's not really any better than any of the other Chinese restaurants around anymore.

    At least the fried rice is still good.

    People who can die by an ingredient have no business going to restaurants.

    That's why they're supposed to clearly label these things. It's so that people who are allergic to an ingredient can still go out and spend money in these restaurants without having to worry about death.

    ya they had a mostly Chinese customer. they hand made the noodles and dumplings and kimche chopped their own veggies and meat. but business has went down and the poor waitress who has been there almost as long as us is stick with it. I used to go in and the workers and wait staff were eating they would give me some of the food. really nice people.

    Have you ever had embalming fluid? It's not nearly as good as it smells.

    People who lie to the public and can't serve safe food have no business running a business.

    If we can't have nuts on a plane because some kid has a severe allergy, you shouldn't be eating anything you're not 100% sure is nut free if you're deathly allergic. In fact, maybe you shouldn't be eating out. A dish may not contain peanuts but others they serve might and contamination could occur.

    If restaurants don't have to label food correctly why should grocery stores?

    Maybe someone just need to open a chain of nut free restaurants. We could call it "Jenner's", and...oh wait, she's still pre-op. NEVERMIND!

    But restaurants shouldn't be deliberately using peanut paste in a meal that's says on the menu it is nut free.
