The supermarket chain, ParknShop, has been explaining why frozen oilfish sold in its stores was labelled as cod. The product was withdrawn after 14 people complained of suffering from diarrhoea after consuming the fish. ParknShop says it had never intended to mislead consumers and didn't do so. It's spokesman Peter Johnston, said the fish had been labelled based on the product identification on a health certificate issued by the Indonesian authorities.
