Main Online

A Brisbane seafood restaurant that gave 29 people food poisoning, including an elite athlete who had to be hospitalised for three days, has been fined $37,000.

Two dodgy batches of mayonnaise were made by the head chef at the South Bank Surf Club in 2015, with Brisbane Magistrates Court hearing they were contaminated with salmonella likely transferred from eggshells.

It was alleged that diners ordering fish and chips, burgers and pork sandwiches were given aioli that had been left out on a kitchen bench away from a refrigerator.

Lawyers for the restaurant on Thursday entered guilty pleas to 22 charges of serving unsafe food over eight days.
