After being issued a red “closed” placard by the state Dept. of Health, the Blue Water Shrimp and Seafood Market located at Ala Moana Center reopened Tuesday afternoon after passing a re-inspection.
Numerous health inspections revealed chronic temperature violations, the department said.
The department issued a penalty fee of $9,000 for the violations that led to the posting of the red placard.
A yellow “conditional pass” card was issued to Blue Water Shrimp and Seafood Market on Oct. 7, and subsequent follow-up inspections on Oct. 9-16 revealed multiple violations of temperature requirements for holding perishable foods.
