Salmon ga­lore, but don’t eat it

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

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.
