Health department data shows increase of critical violations at Arrowhead, Kauffman

Buy me some peanuts and rat feces, I don’t care if I violently get ill….

The number of critical health violations keeps going up at food stands at Kauffman Stadium & Arrowhead Stadium.

Critical violations at Kauffman this season (as of early May) have nearly surpassed the numbers for the entire 2012 season
“That should be a message to the managing company that we’re still doing inspections, we’re still citing violations, and probably they need to change some of their practices,” said Naser Jouhari, manager at the Kansas City Health Department.

“As previously discussed, and the Kansas City Health Department has affirmed, the food at Kauffman Stadium is safe to eat and enjoy. Aramark manages over 70 individually licensed locations at the stadium, which is equivalent to operating 70 different restaurants under one roof during each home game. It’s a highly complex operation with 700 dedicated employees working incredibly hard to serve 38,000 fans a huge amount of food as fast as possible in a small window of time. We take food safety very seriously everywhere we operate and welcome the Health Department’s inspections of our operations, because we want fans to be assured the food they purchase is prepared and served in the safest environment.” - Carl Mittleman, President, Aramark, Sports & Entertainment

Pictures of New Ballpark Food Items « Ben’s Biz Blog

I’m not a health food nut but this stuff doesn’t look appealing. (OK, maybe I’d try the bacon on a stick. Who doesn’t like bacon?)

ESPN: Diamondbacks Offering Churro Dog

For the foodies:

The Arizona Diamondbacks will try to top the success of last year’s 18-inch bacon-and-cheese-stuffed corn dog by offering a dessert. Team president and CEO Derrick Hall told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the team’s star concession item this year will be a Churro Dog.

The Churro Dog is a warm cinnamon churro sitting inside a Long John chocolate-glazed donut, which is then topped with frozen yogurt, caramel and chocolate sauces. Its estimated calorie count is 1,117.

“We’ve found that desserts work really well in the heat we have here,” Hall said. So team chef Michael Snoke got together a focus group of eaters and tested out his Churro Dog idea, and it was immediately loved.

The item, which will be available at two stands on the main concourse at Chase Field, will cost $8.50.
.  .  .
Last year’s specialty, the D-Bat Dog, a huge corn dog that came with a side of fries, cost $25. Despite the price, the team sold 9,517 of them last year. The team will offer the item again this year, Hall said.

Did we get a Primate review on the D-Bat Dog?
