Hungry Jack’s fined $75,000 | Updated: 11:49:10 PM, Saturday December 22, 2012

Fast-food chain Hungry Jack’s has been fined $75,000 for selling food that contained a piece of metal.

Hungry Jack’s was convicted in the Perth Magistrates Court of selling unsuitable food after a woman nearly choked on the 1.5cm piece of metal in an onion ring purchased in February at its outlet at Beechboro northeast of Perth.

It is understood the shaving was likely to have come from maintenance work that had been done at the fast-food outlet the day before.

A lawyer for Hungry Jack’s said the matter had been the subject of much ‘soul searching’ for company management.

A spokesman for Hungry Jack’s said the company was ‘surprised and disappointed’ by the findings and intended to appeal the decision.

‘We have sophisticated quality assurance and rigorous training systems, which we believe stand up to scrutiny,’ he said.
