This story caught the eye of the national media yesterday: a sobering tale for hospitality owners right across the industry. Whilst the recent food allergen regulations have hugely tightened up the rules on allergen information sharing with customers, this is clearly quite a whole different level of culpability. The news that at least one customer had experience a similar reaction in his restaurant only days earlier would seem to confirm the wholly cavalier approach Mr Zaman took to the anaphylaxis risk, hence his lengthy prison sentence. There can be no doubt however that the criminal consequences of a failure to keep customers safe will see higher levels of risk assessment being put in place.
