Salmon galore, but don’t eat it
TWENTY tons of salmon that went ‘missing’ after a road crash should under no circumstances be eaten, it was warned last night.
In scenes reminiscent of classic film Whisky Galore, the cargo spilled from a lorry involved in an accident on the A 2 near Bridge of Orchy in Argyll on Monday.
But Argyll and Bute council is now warning people that the salmon, which could be contaminated, should not be eaten.
In a statement, the authority said: ‘This salmon cannot under any circumstances be used for further processing because of potential food safety issues. If you are in possession of this salmon you are advised to dispose of it immediately.’
A police spokesman said: ‘An HGV left the road and came to a stop down an embankment just south of Bridge of Orchy. The load, fresh salmon, was ejected from the trailer.’
In the 1949 film Whisky Galore, locals salvaged 50,000 cases of whisky from a shipwreck in the Outer Hebrides.
