Bumble Bee Seafoods, which is headquartered in San Diego, said Wednesday it will lay off approximately 120 workers, or 40% of its work force, at its Santa Fe Springs tuna canning facility effective March 27. The layoffs are part of a move to "minimize increases in production costs" at the facility that employs a new tuna loining process that is in the development stage. The process "has not fully achieved the manufacturing cost reductions initially expected," the company said in a release.

A San Diego purveyor of "organic" olives and olive oil has been accused by state regulators of false advertising and of misbranding products, highlighting the sometimes dubious--and lucrative--claims made by firms seeking to exploit the popularity of organic food. The California Department of Health Services said this week it has found evidence of 26 violations of the 1990 state Organic Foods Act by Petrou Foods Inc. Each violation carries a potential fine of $1,000.

The continuing El Nino weather condition has hurt shell-fishing operations in Northern California, but the potentially devastating weather event has had relatively little effect locally, according to spokesmen for companies that are dependent upon the Pacific Ocean. Local kelp beds are growing slower than usual offshore, but El Nino's impact on the local sea urchin industry has been blunted by colder water in recent months near the ocean's bottom.

Launching a program that may someday be extended to its entire branch system, Union Bank said Wednesday it will open four of its San Diego County branches for Sunday business starting this weekend. If the Sunday banking hours prove successful over a test period lasting up to a year, Union Bank will open a "small proportion" of its 180 statewide locations for Sunday business, said Richard C. Hartnack, Union Bank's board vice chairman and head of its community banking group.
