Yankee Stadium is an oasis of luxury advertising and big money: When a baseball Park marries a high-end mall, the Yankee Stadium would be the spoiled offspring, but at 79.1 percent of stalls, bars, and other outlets During the match, at least one breach of food safety standards was committed during a two-year period. And Yankee Stadium is not even the worst food safety resort in America, according to a new analysis of ESPN's Outside the Lines health inspection reports at 111 sports facilities in the United States.

When examining four professional leagues (MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL) and 16,000 reports submitted in 2016 and 2017, the ESPN analysis showed that the venues are shitty. After working through the food safety reviews prepared over a two-year period, ESPN found that at least half of the food stalls had violated at 28 per cent of sports facilities in the country. Food safety breaches can spread food-borne diseases.
High-level violations according to the report:
Chicken, shrimp and sushi cook at dangerous temperatures that can breed bacteria; Employees wipe their faces with their hands and then look after food for the customers. Cooks are sweating over food; Beef blood dripping on a shelf; moldy or expired food; contaminated equipment or contaminated equipment; and the presence of live cockroaches and mice. Less serious, but still sick: dirty soil, fruit flies, annoying pigeons and at one point beer that leaks from the ceiling.
shrimp. Sweaty food. Beef blood We may never play a baseball hotspot again.
The Yankee Stadium was the worst offender in MLB in terms of the number of outlets within the venue with one or more high-level violations. Spectrum Center, where the Charlotte Hornets play, was the worst NBA arena. Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers, was the worst NFL stadium. For the NHL, American Airlines Center, where the Dallas Stars (and the Mavericks) play, was the worst.
The ESPN report also compared sports facilities with restaurants in the area. It was found that only nine sports arenas on average had a higher rate of high-level offenses than those in the community. The Yankee Stadium, for example, has been beaten at a higher level than average food businesses in New York City, with fewer average breaches. In other words, everywhere is disgusting. Stick to making sandwiches at home.
