ESPN Stadium Food Study: Philadelphia Fares Relatively Well

South philly dog
ESPN conducted a study of vendor food safety inspections at major stadiums across the US, and Philly faired pretty well.  Relatively speaking.

The stats:

Citizen's Bank Park has 29% of vendors in violation:  A few locations received critical violations for not having a food-safety-certified supervisor present.

Wells Fargo Center (it's official folks) has 15% of vendors in violation:  Inspectors found evidence of mouse and fruit fly infestations at one bar location.

Lincoln Financial Field has 33% of vendors in violation:  One location deemed "out of compliance" incurred two repeat critical violations for not installing sneeze guards on a buffet and not providing a hand-washing station.

Now, before you go getting grossed out, read the reports from New York and Washington.

Madison Square Garden has 61% of vendors in violation:  At one stand, inspectors found "53 mouse excreta" (38 on top of a metal box underneath the cash registers in the front food-prep/service area and 15 on top of a carbonated-beverage dispensing unit.)

Verizon Center has 100% of vendors in violation:  Mice droppings, a critical violation in Washington, were found at at least 10 vendors.

Oh yeah, and don't eat in Florida.

  1. Then why do they have the same article?? I bet you can find that picture on the internet.

  2. Because it was a popular story yesterday all around sports- a study done by ESPN. I bet 100 blogs have some variance of that story. And you will not find that picture on the internet, other than here
    And don’t go using the editor of the 700 level’s name in your post, we’ve spoken before, and he would email me if he had a problem.
    Before you go criticizing people, get your facts straight.

  3. i’m not sure what “me” means. But I’d think Enrico would handle it a little more maturely if he thought we were stealing content (which we’re not).

  4. Surprised Nassau did perfectly. That place is about a thousand years old. As long as the beer at MSG is no contaminated I should be ok
