Food service at Reds, Bengals stadiums fails ESPN cleanliness test

ESPN's Outside the Lines analysis looked at local food safety inspection reports, from 2016-2017.

OLD FOOD: Inspectors found old food from a previous game in a disconnected warmer on July 25, 2017.

Coors Field had a 71.96% high-level violation rate, per the ESPN study.

Or, according to an ESPN "Outside the Lines" report, you could leave sick.

At Bank of America Stadium, county inspections are done on 54 outlets, from the Panther's Den to Cheese Steak #533, and in three categories - restaurants, food stands and push carts. They had 13 high-level inspections of the 41 outlets that were inspected. "Our managers work closely with health inspectors and immediately begin addressing and correcting any issues. We disagree with the ESPN report, whose methodology is unexplainable", said Dan Smith, president of hospitality at Legends, the food service provider at the stadium.

Issues that were highlighted in the study include problems with food handling hygiene, soiled garments, contaminated or cross-contaminated food and improper discard.

The report says that 63 different outlets were inspected, with 34 containing high-level health violations.

At Bank of America Stadium, the report cited "moldy, expired cream cheese along with out-of-date deli turkey" in the main kitchen, raw beef dripping blood in an area where ready-to-eat food was stored, and employees who didn't wash their hands, including one who handled raw beef and then touched utensils. "We take every violation incredibly seriously".

The worst offenders were North Carolina's Spectrum Center with 92 percent of its concession stands committing violations, Michigan's The Palace of Auburn Hills - which has permanently closed - at 86.11 percent, and Texas' American Airlines Center at 83.08 percent. There is a great deal of subjectivity in reporting food-safety inspections across jurisdictions, which makes it incredibly hard to normalize scores across many counties and states. "That was one of three priority violations at this location during the inspection", the report reads.

Capital One Arena - home of the Wizards and Capitals - was not ranked, because there wasn't enough vendor data available.
