A lawsuit against Sean "Diddy" Combs has been bolstered by four witnesses who allegedly saw the music mogul commit assault in Los Angeles last year.

The four new witnesses all allege they saw Combs physically attack real-estate agent Gerard Rechnitzer at a Los Angeles party following last year's Academy Awards show, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.

While Combs has not been the target of any criminal charges from the incident, Rechnitzer has since sued the "Making the Band" star.

Witness Michael Sherman alleges he saw Diddy punch the 27-year-old agent during the celebration last February at the Roosevelt Hotel.

"All of a sudden, (Diddy) hit him. And there was a taxi behind Gerard. Gerard got knocked into the taxi," Sherman alleged.

The other witnesses offered similar accounts of the incident and their testimonies should help bolster Rechnitzer's civil suit, the Daily News reported.

Combs' attorney has called the suit "completely baseless" and said the singer is not legally responsible for the incident.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Boston, MA -- March 14, 2008 -- Slade Gorton & Co is issuing a voluntary recall of its "ICYBAY" cooked, ready to eat, frozen Langostinos because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The product retails in one pound, clear plastic package marked with UPC 0-73129-61672-8 on the top and with an expiration date of June 2009 and is distributed under the brand name of "ICYBAY". The product also was distributed to wholesale accounts, also under the "ICYBAY" brand, in five pound clear plastic packages containing either 70-90 count, 90-125 count or 120-150 count. This recall involves production dates of July 18, 2007 through August 13, 2007 and/or Julian dates of 199 through 232.

The recalled "ICYBAY" cooked langostinos were distributed to retailers in Massachusetts and Maryland, over the course of the past several weeks. The majority of the retail distribution was removed from shelves immediately upon notice of the potential of contamination. The recalled "ICYBAY" cooked langostinos were distributed to wholesalers in Colorado, Connecticut, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

The potential for contamination was noted after a Canadian government laboratory, CFIA, found that one sample was believed to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product.

President Kim Gorton said her company, one of the largest private seafood distributors in the United States, strictly follows HACCP procedures and FDA guidelines for testing its seafood products to ensure their wholesomeness and safety.

She said that "while the report from Canada only involves a small sample of the langostinos, we are issuing this voluntary recall, as a precautionary measure, out of concern for the health and safety of the consuming public."

Distribution of the product has been suspended while FDA and the company continue to confirm testing and investigate the source of any potential problem. Slade Gorton & Co. will use an independent testing service to determine the accuracy of the Canadian findings.

Consumers who have purchased one pound packages of "ICYBAY" cooked langostinos are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-225-1573.
