Other Media | SeafoodSource: Chris Lischewski sentenced to 40 months in prison, USD 100,000 fine

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Former Bumble Bee President and CEO Chris Lischewski was sentenced to 40 months in prison and given a USD 100,000 fine (EUR 88,000) as part of his role in a conspiracy to fix the prices of canned tuna sold in the United States from 2011 to 2013.

The sentence comes after a three-week-long trial in December ended with a jury finding Lischewski guilty of being involved in a scheme between Bumble Bee, StarKist, and Chicken of the Sea to fix the price of tuna. Lischewski was facing a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of USD 1 million (EUR 887,500).

The sentence, according to U.S. District Court Judge Edward M. Chen, is in accordance to the severity of the conspiracy, which was “widespread, pervasive, and affecting the entire industry.”

A new wave of COVID-19 in China has prompted the country to stop importing Norwegian salmon, after the virus was detected on boards used for cutting up imported salmon at the Xinfadi food market in Beijing.

In the past four days, over 100 new cases of infection have been reported in the Chinese capital alone, with the majority of cases linked to the market. Following the outbreak, stores in China have stopped selling salmon.

The Norwegian Seafood Council has issued a statement to reassure buyers “about the food safety of [Norwegian] seafood products in light of several unsubstantiated rumours regarding the source of infection.”
