Fish believed to have been nicked after road accident. Council warns public not to buy missing unprocessed salmon because of potential food safety issues.

Argyll and Bute Council has issued a warning after twenty tonnes of salmon went “missing” after a lorry carrying the fish crashed on the A82 – a major road in Scotland that runs from Glasgow to Inverness via Fort William.

The accident happened on the trunk road on Tuesday.

According to the council the salmon may have entered the food supply chain and is potentially unsafe to eat and should not be consumed.

“At the time of the accident the salmon was head on and gutted and of various sizes. It had not undergone processing.

“There is a possibility it is has been contaminated and may not have been subject to the required chilled conditions,” it wrote.
