The World

September 25, 1985

Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney acknowledged that his senior advisers knew in July that the government had released tuna fish for sale even though federal inspectors found it unfit for human consumption. But Mulroney said his aides were assured that the 1 million cans of tuna posed no health threat. He said he did not learn of the matter until he saw a television news report Sept. 17, and that he acted immediately to have the tuna recalled. The issue forced the resignation Monday of Fisheries Minister John Fraser.
