The Contaminants in Food (England) Regulations 2004 is a harsh law indeed.
"Any person who fails to comply with any of the requirements specified in a notice served under paragraph (1) shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary execution to a fine…"
It’s disturbing enough that we’ve reintroduced the death penalty for people who import inappropriate food into the UK – but fining people after they’ve been executed seems particularly harsh.
