34 Percent of Coliseum Food Vendors and 19 Percent at Oracle Arena Have “Critical” Food Safety Violations, ESPN Reports

An investigation by ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” has turned up evidence of widespread food-safety issues at sports venues across the country. Our two East Bay pro sports facilities didn’t acquit themselves too well. 34 percent of the vendors at McAfee Coliseum reported “critical” violations, including an absence of handwashing equipment. And 19 percent of the vendors at Oracle Arena failed the test, with special scrutiny being extended to some yucky potato salad that was left out an an unsafe temperature, only to be put back in the fridge to be resold the next day (Memo to self: time to switch to garlic fries.)
