This has been in the national and the local news the last few days as well. There is a small mistake in the article in the link above, she was actually arrested for buying this toxic shellfish (not selling). She was on local tv last night saying that "This has been a big misunderstanding"... she was arrested while she was exchanging money for the shellfish.

Toñi Vicente (has one Michelin star in her Santiago restaurant).

Let's see how long that star stays :?
