Disturbing Food Safety Results At Sports Stadiums

Sports fans might want to just watch the game instead of eating at some sports stadiums across the country. ESPN just went through a list of food safety inspections and made some pretty gross discoveries.

ESPN looked through 107 health inspection reports for all the major league stadiums and ball parks. They found more than half of the concession stands or restaurants had been cited for at least one “critical” or “major” health violation.
“That is alarming and, quite frankly, it shouldn’t happen. It’s a simple matter of taking the time to make sure that you have clean products,” said Ryan Osterholm, a food safety attorney at Pritzker Olsen.

Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays, had one of the worst records. Every one of the stadium’s 47 food and drink outlets inspected had a critical violation, including slime in the ice machines.

“They have to turn over a lot of food very quickly and it’s often part-time employees that are working there that might not properly be trained,” said Osterholm.
