BAK­ERS FINED

THREE Um­tali bak­ers ap­peared in the Um­tali Mag­is­trates’ Court charged with sell­ing un­der­weight bread. They were all found guilty and fined $15 (15 days).

E. Zam­bel­lis, A. Doulatos and B.Mavroke­fa­los were vis­ited by an as­sizes of­fi­cer, who dis­cov­ered vari­a­tions in the weight of their bread.

Some were over­weight and some were un­der­weight, but on an av­er­age the loaves were a few grammes less than spec­i­fied weight.

Zam­bel­lis ex­plained that the bread dough lost weight while it cooled off af­ter bak­ing and could lose up to five ounces.
