UM cans food company over stored alcohol
Ann Arbor — A University of Michigan spokesman says the school canceled a contract with a food service provider because it was illegally storing alcohol in a campus research complex.
The Ann Arbor News reports the university terminated its contract with Detroit-based Opus One Catering on June 19. University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald says the school was told June 18 by the state Liquor Control Commission the company was storing alcohol at its restaurant Flavors, located in the North Campus Research Complex.
Fitzgerald says it’s hard to know whether alcohol was being served, but that its storage in the building was a violation. State records say Opus One has a liquor license, but that alcohol would have to be removed after catered events.
The Associated Press left a message seeking comment from Opus One after business hours Monday.
