How Safe Was the Food at Giants Stadium?

This past week on Outside The Lines they did a piece about the worsening conditions of food safety at major league stadiums.

Almost every stadium had at least one “critical violation” and the ajority had multiple.

The worst offenders were Tropicana Field and the Verizon Center, where 100% of vendors had critical violations.

So how did Giants Stadium, the now old home of the Jets, fare?

Vendors with critical violations: 20%
Inspection report excerpt: Managers tossed 20 pounds of ground beef after inspectors cited them for letting partially grilled burgers with raw centers sit at unsafe temperatures for three hours before final cooking.

Hmmm come to think of it, that burger I had last year did taste kind of funky.

All kidding aside, this is a serious issue.

And just because the Jets are moving into a new stadium, it doesn’t mean that conditions will get better.

The Yankees and Mets, who both moved into new stadiums this past season, both had at least 45% of vendors commit critical violations.

This is just another reason why you should bring your own food to the game. I have been doing it for years, mainly because of the outrageous prices they charge and now I’m more inclined to do so out of fear of my health.
