Luxury Hotels Pull Japanese Food Off Menu

Luxury hotels in Hong Kong are taking Japanese fish, beef and other foods off their menus due to Japan’s nuclear crisis, according to Bloomberg.

The concern is that food may have been contaminated after radiation was released from the deteriorating nuclear power plant.Shangri-La, Mandarin Oriental and Four Seasons hotels in Hong Kong have all stopped buying fresh foods from Japan even though no clear risk has been confirmed yet.

At the Four Seasons in Hong Kong, chefs are no longer cooking up Wagyu beef, sea scallops and abalone from Japan. The hotel is using products from New Zealand and Australia, according to hotel publicist Claire Blackshaw.

Hotel officials say they won’t add Japanese food back on the menu until the situation stabilizes.
