Restaurant fined

THE Merrylin chain restaurant had 300,000 yuan (US$48,387) of income confiscated and was fined 2,000 yuan after one of its outlets was discovered serving short-weight seafood to diners in March, the city's quality watchdog said yesterday. The chain restaurant was also ordered to stop using "Shanghai Famous Trademark'' on signs at its eateries or in ads in April. Merrylin's Hongkou outlet was found using an electronic weighing scale that was not checked by the Shanghai Quality and Technical Supervision Bureau. A remote-control receiver was found inside the electronic weighing scale, which allowed restaurant workers to add 30 percent more weight to seafood.
