RESTAURANTS TO USE SEPARATE FRYERS FOR SEAFOOD HEARING

By Bob Katzen

The Public Health Committee held a hearing on legislation that would require all restaurants to use a separate fryer for the preparation of seafood, and not prepare any other food in the fryer used for seafood.

“Many restaurants do not use separate fryers and oil for seafood,” said the bill’s sponsor, private citizen Brian Donahue. He explained that if you have a seafood allergy and you order french fries or some other fried dish with your meal, it could be prepared in the seafood fryer and you can become violently ill.
