Re: A restaurant customer suffered a severe reaction to food they thought was gluten-free, but wasn't.<br />
A safety call has been issued following a court case involving the owner of popular Uplands-based restaurant Vietnam.<br />
Manh Van Vo pleaded guilty to two offences contrary to the Food Information (Wales) Regulations 2014 at Swansea Magistrates' Court. He was fined a total of £1,200 and ordered to pay costs of £828.<br />
Swansea Council's Trading Standards staff initially received a complaint in July 2016 from a consumer who had visited the restaurant, requested gluten-free meals but became ill shortly after.<br />
Officers then visited the restaurant and bought the same meals as the complainant so they could be tested.<br />
Results from the tests showed that one of the gluten-free meals was found to have over 80 times the permitted maximum levels of gluten.
