Fenway food stands failed inspections

Fell short on opening day, cleared after 19 games

Globe Staff / June 12, 2008

Fenway Park's food stands flunked city health inspections on more than a dozen health and safety measurements on Red Sox opening day April 8, from storing food at unsafe temperatures to failing to clean food preparation counters.

City inspectors discovered the violations, which were significant enough to pose a risk of food poisoning for patrons, even though they had found virtually the same set of problems in an examination more than a week earlier and demanded corrective action.

The concession operator's response to the city's findings was so slow that the city threatened at a municipal court hearing to shut down Fenway Park's food stands if the problems were not fixed. Ultimately, 19 home games passed, and thousands of $4 hot dogs and $6 Italian sausages passed across the counters before the Red Sox concession stands finally passed a city health inspection on May 16.

I'm surprised they dont grease the health department with tickets or autographs or something.

When I worked in minor league ball, the health inspector didnt want to give us a bad grade, and was willing to bargain for it.

Always got great seats from us... although I dont think he ever bought any concessions.... hmmm..
