Case 276 - Restaurant staff declared that pork crackling is not allowed to be served for Health and Safety reasons!

Issue

Enquirer was told by restaurant staff that pork crackling is not allowed to be served for Health and Safety reasons! It may splash the chef!

Panel decision

The panel is somewhat bemused by this case. Anyone who cooks roast dinners at home knows that pork crackling can be produced perfectly safely as part of roasting a joint of meat. Breaking the crackling into pieces for serving can be quite tricky but it is hardly a health and safety issue. It should be a fairly basic skill for any chef to acquire.

The company needs to own up to the real reason why they refuse to serve pork crackling.
