Michelin-starred eatery fined for food safety violation

COPENHAGEN, Denmark » A Danish restaurant with three Michelin stars has been fined $2,840 for storing fresh shellfish at too high temperatures.

When inspectors with Denmark’s food administration visited the Geranium restaurant in Copenhagen on Sept. 29 on a regular random visit, they frowned.

Crayfish, scallops and oysters were kept in fridges with temperatures up to 48.6 F — far above the maximum 35.6 F.

Geranium chef Rasmus Kofoed told public broadcaster DR the errors had been corrected but admitted they may “have been a bit inattentive.”

He didn’t believe the fine would any impact on regular customers. In February, the eatery became the first Danish restaurant to be awarded three stars ever.
