The Birmingham Post reports that a Chinese restaurant in the U.K.’s Black Country – and I know what that means having now been there -- is being forced to pay out almost £65,000 after nearly 50 of its diners went down with food poisoning.
Kwai Lun Chiu, a director of the Wing Wah restaurant in Oldbury, was also given a 12 month Community Order and told to carry out 100 hours community punishment.
The sick diners included a 22-month-old baby and an 80-year-old man, who had to spend 12 days in hospital.
They all caught salmonella after the buffet restaurant chefs used raw eggs in a tiramisu dessert, Wolverhampton Crown Court heard.
