The sushi bar in David Jones’ famous food hall has been added to the NSW Food Authority’s Name and Shame list after they breached the Food Safety Code.

“Prawn and salmon sushi with cooked rice was found to be in the temperature range of 11.8C to 24.5C, the required temperature for retail display is 5C or less unless a business has in place a system to ensure product is displayed for no more than 4 hours without refrigeration," said Primary Industries Minister Steve Whan.

The MInister said the listing of the David Jones sushi bar shows that the top end of town is subject to equal scrutiny as any other food service business in NSW.

“The business failed to demonstrate that the temperature or any heating or cooling process in use will not adversely affect the microbiological safety of food and was fined $660,” Minister Whan said.

Name and Shame listings include:

• Koh-Ya Yakiniku Japanese Restaurant in Neutral Bay fined $660 for storing raw meat on dirty wet towels directly above ready to eat food

• Everest Tandoori at Kogarah fined $660 after inspectors found a mobile phone lying on a chopping board that was in use

• Balmain Trattoria and Pizzeria fined $5940 for nine breaches of the Food Standards Code including using food including bacon and Italian sausages past use-by date and preparing food in the basement

• Money Bags Thai Restaurant in Baulkham Hills fined $2640 for three breaches including the preparation of raw prawns and noodles in the back courtyard in dirty, unprotected buckets

Perhaps we do need to have a buyers point of fashion shows, but http://www.monclerjacketsshop2012.com/ moncler outlet are often make decisions in the showroom. In fact, hiring models, styling, makeup, spend all the money to run a campaign is nothing more than show. years ago, JohnBartlett other men's designers in New York fashion show held during the week. So even really need a New York Fashion Week "tent", that does not mean that to obtain the "tent" outside the core supporters of the attention.
