Probably the last thing you wanted to know today but there is a new report from ESPN according to Men's Health, that says that stadium food is "nasty and full of human sweat!" Um grosssssss!
ESPN did their research before making this claim but reviewing health inspection reviews of about 111 sports venues across the country from 2016 to 2017. This includes professional baseball, football, basketball and hockey venues.
"After combing through food safety inspection reports made over the two-year period, ESPN found that at 28 percent of sports venues in the country, at least half the food stalls had high-level violations. Food safety violations can spread food-borne illnesses."
Super gross right?!
Here is an exert from the ESPN report:
"Chicken, shrimp and sushi festering at dangerous temperatures that can breed bacteria; employees wiping their faces with their hands and then handling food for customers; cooks sweating over food; beef blood dripping on a shelf; moldy or expired food; dirty utensils or contaminated equipment; and the presence of live cockroaches and mice. Less serious but still icky: dirty floors, fruit flies, pesky pigeons and, in one venue, beer leaking from a ceiling."
So which stadiums are the worst? Here is a list:
Maybe a reminder to eat before a game!
