Default Bugs, mold on menu at K.C. stadiums

http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/...y-pro-stadiums



The food safety manager at Kansas City's Kauffman and Arrowhead stadiums, home to the Royals and the Chiefs, told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that poor food handling and dirty conditions have routinely been putting fans' health at risk -- including during the World Series. In addition, a city health department inspection completed Nov. 3 found dozens of critical health code violations at the facilities, according to documents obtained by "Outside the Lines."

Among the concerns found at the stadiums by the manager: cockroaches in vending areas, mouse feces on the same tray as pizza dough, sinks where employees were supposed to wash their hands being blocked by boxes or trash, employees eating in food prep areas and trays of food headed for customers that measured at unsafe temperatures. The health department found several critical violations, including mold growth in ice machines, dirty pans and trays and excessive numbers of fruit flies
"When we lose control over hygienic practices and we also combine that with poor temperature control -- that could be a catastrophe," said Jon Costa, the district food safety manager for Aramark, which runs the concessions at both venues and has food and beverage contracts with 30 professional sports teams. "That is a recipe for foodborne illness. ... It's very likely temperatures are abused every game. Every game.

Costa sent information about the food safety concerns to local media and ESPN last week, a step he said he took after months of trying to get Aramark senior management to address his concerns and reprimand employees who broke food handling and prep rules. He said he had no authority to reprimand employees, and he was powerless on site because the employees he would have been instructing did not report to him. After learning that Costa sent those details to the media, Aramark placed him on paid administrative leave last week for violating its media policy, Costa said managers have not been promoting food safety, especially among the food prep workers who actually handle the ingredients, as evidenced by a scene he described from the final game of the World Series on Oct. 29. The concession stands were running low on pizza dough, and a prep worker told him that she was left with a tray of dough that had expired Oct. 25.

There's as much mold on that food as the Chiefs trophy case.

I don't expect to get healthy food at sporting events, but I would expect for the whorehouse price that the chili that's slopped on top of my hotdog didn't come from someone's anus.

A guy stopped at a roadside tavern and noticed the sign behind bar that said -

Hamburger $3
Cheeseburger $4
Fries $2
Handjob $50

He noticed the cute blonde behind the bar and asked her if she was the one who gave the hand jobs, she said " Yes..."

The guy told her, "ok well go wash your hands I want a cheeseburger..."

Aramark is the same contractor that provided maggot infested food to Michigan prisons. They are an awful, awful company that needs to be shuttered.
