15-year-old Rasmus is selling eggs in his spare time: he must Now pay the fine of 5,000 crowns

A fine of 5000 dollars and a sour smiley.

It was the result, as Fødevarekontrollen at the end of november came by 15-year-old Rasmus Hemmelef beck's home on the Roagervej at Esbjerg.

Skoledrengen has 60 chickens, which he spends a great deal of his free time to take care of, so he can sell their eggs to people in the local area.

The cosy hobby provides much-needed spending money to the enterprising teen, but now he has got a fine from the Fødevarekontrollen, writes JydskeVestkysten.

As the Fødevarekontrollen was past the chicken coop in the fall, there were several things that were not in order:

Rasmus got to know that he would remember to disclose the expiration date on the eggs. He should also report his crew to salmonellakontrol, because he has more than 30 chickens.

Finally, the instance, the Control over that Rasmus has a sign by the road, which advertises on æggesalget, and therefore becomes his 'business' is considered as a public sale.

Fødevarekontrollen came a few weeks later, passing by on an inspection, where things still were not working.

Therefore, the 15-year-old boy now have to pay a fine of 5,000 crowns.

It seems his father is a violent penalty. He agrees that food security must be taken serious, but he believes that the authorities are shooting gråspurve with guns.

"It is a 15-year-old high school student, who sells some eggs in his spare time. And had he not had a sign standing out by the road, there had not been any case. It is to overreact from Fødevarekontrollens side," says Ove Beck to JydskeVestkysten.

the Father adds, however, that the father and son now will bring things in order, so that Rasmus can continue to sell eggs.
