Detroit Tigers food services employee in custody after video showed him spitting on pizza

A Detroit Tigers food services employee is in police custody after a video emerged in which he spits on pizza intended for Comerica Park customers, according to WXYZ.

Video of the incident emerged Saturday, when another employee posted it on Instagram. The video shows the man spitting on pizza crust before covering up his spit with sauce. The post is still up on Instagram, but we must warn you that it’s pretty gross.

The incident occurred Friday. Representatives from Delaware North, the company that runs food services at Comerica Park, told Yahoo Sports they immediately shut down the food stand. The employee in the video has been fired.

For those of you who want yet another reason to make sure to eat before coming to the game…..

well, to be fair, "spit" is listed as one of the toppings there.

"can I get a slice with pepperoni and spit, please?"

#loogy

the feces topping promotion - part of the "Meat Lovers" special - did not fare so well, so sausage was reinstated

Was it a Little Casesar's pizza? Because that might be an improvement.

I don't expect to rate that pizza very highly.

Delaware North generally runs a pretty shvtty ship. Barebone leadership stretched very thin and the bottom of the barrel labor pool generally running the asylum.

Stories like this make me uncomfortable, because I think about all the things I've unknowingly eaten that I would not knowingly eat. I'm sure with as many meals as I've eaten out there have been a few incidents. I'd rather have the spiders at night, thank you.

Yeah, if you think too hard about it you can't ever go to a restaurant again. So it's best not to.

Re#4, as a former SportsService employee (a Delaware North company) as a food vendor, this is it. It was a crapshoot in terms how things would go from homestand to homestand. Whoever ran the commissary stations had the power to ruin it for everybody (vendor and fan alike), or make everything alright. That was among the many reasons I tried to stick with peanuts. I would imagine its a similar experience at the concession stands.

Is Delaware North the company whose contract forced the renaming of such Yosemite landmarks as the Ahwanee Hotel and Curry Village?
   9. McCoy Posted: September 25, 2018 at 02:20 PM (#5751616)
Yes. Well, it wasn't forced because of a contract. They lost the rights of concession to Aramark and now DNC is contending that the names and trademarks are theirs and not the governments.

I worked at Burger King for about 7 years through high school and college and while not admitting to anything I'll say this story does not surprise me.

Meh, when I worked at a grocery store, our mice and rats came in on the trucks from the distribution centre. Unless you're growing all your food in some hermetically sealed greenhouse, you're hosed.

In Down and Out in Paris and London (George Orwell), the kitchen staff were spitting in peoples meals.
   14. Zonk is One Individual Posted: September 25, 2018 at 04:16 PM (#5751764)
Heh, well -

If makes anyone feel any better, I worked for about three years in one of those chain style places (think Chilis because it was Chilis), splitting time waiting tables, in the kitchen, and in the bar - and I can honestly say that I never saw anyone adulterate any food in such a manner. Some sneaking fries on a plate, perhaps some fingers touching that which shouldn't have been touched... but no actual spitting or such.

Now... can I tell you that nothing ever hit the floor and got used anyway or that rampant, unsanitary 'grazing' went on, or that various other bric-a-brak existed which would give you pause? No comment. My suggestion would be "Do not dine out during rush/busy periods".
   15. McCoy Posted: September 25, 2018 at 04:22 PM (#5751771)
The reality is that people's level of standard for things they see is much higher for things they can eat without telling the difference.

All food is contaminated. Your food at home, your food at fine dining places, your food at fast food places. All of it. But the kicker is that it is in no way as contaminated as it was say 100 years ago. Nowadays it is contaminated by say say human touch and having bug parts in it. Things that for the most part are meaningless other than in a psychological sense.
   16. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: September 25, 2018 at 04:38 PM (#5751782)

My experience is the opposite. During busy periods we were just cranking through stuff so there was no tomfoolery, it's when you have a moment to catch your breath that you can do something a bit unpleasant (especially if you are yelling at the girl on the register that I have a crush on because there was too much ice in her Coke....hypothetically).

Sorry, no. When I make a hard boiled egg, there isn't anything in it that I have to worry about.

I get it, though. Food handling isn't pristine.
   19. McCoy Posted: September 25, 2018 at 08:17 PM (#5751945)
And how do you get that egg in your mouth? How do you store them? How do you serve them? Unless you somehow fling the egg out of the boiling water and catch it in your mouth on the fly your eggs is going to be contaminated.
   20. phredbird Posted: September 25, 2018 at 08:26 PM (#5751954)

just for the sake of argument, not that i think you're wrong, but how about this:

the egg is boiled, and fished out of the boiling water with tongs or something, and placed in an egg holder.

then it's eaten with a spoon and knife (previously washed with soap and scalding water) the way the english do, wacking the top off with the knife and scooping it.

that said, i can't live on boiled eggs. and i can't live without warm pita bread dredged through hummus with with my fingers and stuffed in my mouth.

so, yeah, what mccoy said.

   21. stig-tossled, hornswoggled gef the typing mongoose Posted: September 25, 2018 at 08:50 PM (#5751978)
WTF? I've heard of eating soft-boiled eggs that way, and for that matter have done so (except for the part with the knife, because I try to make a practice of not being a simpering fop) ... but a hard-boiled egg? Of course not.
   22. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: September 25, 2018 at 08:59 PM (#5751985)
You can never have too much ice (for water, tea, or soft drink, and some mixers). I would never own a home again w/o an undercounter ice maker with 50lbs of proper sized ice cubes on demand. High maintenance machine, but if you clean it regularly, you are rewarded. Plus you get some real estate back in your refrigerator/freezer w/o the stupid ice maker and water lines taking up precious space.
   23. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: September 25, 2018 at 09:02 PM (#5751988)
AFAICT spit in a ballpark pizza is pretty much indistinguishable from all the other ingredients, though it may be a bit warmer.

Dyrlund


On the off chance you don't know Danish, basically, the lyrics are, "What? Are you stupid? Don't you have ice? We have ice, because we're cool, you don't have ice, there is a very good chance you are a pathetic loser...but that's OK, come on over, we'll share our ice with you...and you'll be as bad-ass as we are."

And there's no way that's ####### Denmark in the video...looks like Croatia if you ask me.

Albert Dyrlund is much younger than I am...so I don't have to ponder how much I'll miss him when he goes (honestly, the answer would be "not at all")...normally I'd think that there's a good chance that some Eurotrash vlogger wouldn't outlive me, no matter what age they were...but he's Danish, so with their advanced, universal medical care, and their hygge....

Look, if this is getting too political for you?

Sutte en kølig en.

OK, I'll stop kidding around. People don't understand how important ice is. Travel in some Third-World hellhole (like New Zealand), and they don't have any ice...maybe a single tray in the freezer...it's terrible (although they do give you fresh milk for tea. No really, check-in in a hotel in NZ, and they hand you a half pint of milk with the room key). In America, even the saddest motel has an ice machine. That's why you guys dominate the world! Well, correlation isn't causation, but without a doubt "more ice" means more "we're America, #####!". In Canada, we have lots of ice, but it's naturally occurring, and some guys have probably already skated all over it, so it's not the same thing at all. I personally don't have any sophisticated ice-making apparatus in my house, but if I'm feeling the need, I buy a bag at the convenience store, it's really cheap (3 bucks CAD, so two bits USD), and I'm ready for anything.

REAL LIFE CONVERSATION:

"What are we doing tonight?"

"I dunno. But let's buy some ice."

"For sure."

Useful for what? The point is that everything is contaminated and our threshold for eating something is much lower than it needs to be.

Somebody sees somebody touch their food with their fingers and they say no thanks. Meanwhile the good they get in a wrapper was touched by 6 people, the wrappers were stored in a closet that mice and cockroach live in, and the food inside the wrapper is a week old. But everything is hunky dory because they didn't see anyone touch it.

I have never been a germaphobe - and have never had a sick day in 35 years.

there is some merit to the point.

the last time I had even a mild cold was about 15 years ago - a New Year's Day college FB blast with a bunch of snotty rugrats running around. I found my (mild) kryptonite.

McCoy is absolutely right in this thread... weighing in as another food service worker, if most people knew what food service people know about the food that gets served, they wouldn't eat it... nor, by extension, would they eat much of anything.

That being said, I spent years in two different commercial kitchens, in a high turnover industry (pizza), and I never once saw ANY purposeful tampering with food.

Notwithstanding the knife part (nobody uses one, you just whack the top of the egg with the spoon to crack the shell then pick the bits of shell off) how the hell else does one eat a soft-boiled egg? You can't dip the soldiers in if it's just rolling around a plate.
   34. Morty Causa Posted: September 26, 2018 at 05:59 AM (#5752120)
The point is that everything is contaminated

That doesn't mean we should tolerate more of it. An unnecessary (and uncalled for) infusion of it. Hospitals are contaminated, too. That doesn't mean moping with anti-germ disinfectant isn't a good idea. Doctors probably really don't need to change their gowns after it becomes splatter with blood. And what's the deal with the cleanup crews at gyms and health clubs wearing surgical gloves to pick up the discarded towels, anyway?

Most people would define "contaminated," usefully, as: "you probably shouldn't eat that."

A fork in my utensil drawer is not contaminated in any useful sense. But because it is not at this instant sitting in boiling water, undergoing high pressure treatment, or sitting in a bucket of sanitizer, I concede that there is a minuscule chance that it's hazardous. Perhaps my son took it out, coughed on it, and replaced it. Perhaps the drawer itself is leaching imperceptible amounts of some toxic substance. Perhaps some stranger came into my home, used my fork to eat listeria-harboring potato salad, and then placed it back in the drawer. None of these hazards are, in HACCP parlance, reasonably likely to occur. Calling my fork "contaminated" is only correct in a narrow, academic, useless sense. Maybe it's a good standard if you're a chef for NASA or something.

Of course you're right that people have a very poor understanding of what goes into food production, what hazards are important, etc.
   36. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: September 26, 2018 at 08:50 AM (#5752152)
Years ago I worked for a company similar to Delaware North. While I agree that most of what we think of as "contamination" really isn't that bad I have to admit that ever since being part of an audit of our vending services I haven't eaten out of a vending machine since. Those things are ####### gross.
   37. McCoy Posted: September 26, 2018 at 08:51 AM (#5752155)
Most people would define "contaminated," usefully, as: "you probably shouldn't eat that."

And what most people think fits into the "you probably shouldn't eat that" group is a lot but not consistent. Fork drops on the floor? Don't use it or even better splash some water on it or wipe it off with a dish towel. Fork in a utensil drawer? Perfectly clean despite never having cleaned out the utensil drawer and their being food debris inside the drawer along with moisture and darkness.

Human beings get sick from foodborne illnesses all the time. The vast majority of the time we just don't know it. Got a headache from out of nowhere? Could have been caused from something you ate? Upset stomach? Could be food. Cramping, vomiting, diarrhea, a fever? All of things could have been from something you ate and a good chunk of time it is. So most people don't really do a good job of defining "contaminated".

I was the cook at a KFC for about a year in high school. We'd pick up and serve fallen pieces of chicken, sure. Never saw any malicious contamination like spitting though.

I have eaten maybe twice at a KFC in the 20+ years since then. Just seeing the volume of salt, grease and fat involved was enough to turn me off.

Glad to hear an actual (IIRC) Brit confirm that. The knife crap just sounds pathetically pretentious.

My great-aunt owned proper egg cups (& I sort of sporadically collect them, which is to say I might nab one or more if I come across them cheap in a flea market or thrift shop), but as a kid IIRC I was more likely to be served a soft-boiled egg in a custard bowl or something very close to it.

Speaking of Denmark, I have seen this device there. You put the cup on top of your egg (which is in an eggcup). The larger steel ball has a hole in the middle. You raise the large ball till it touches the small one and drop it. The top of the egg comes away precisely, no need to whack it with a knife or spoon.

If this is what Detroit-style pizza is, it might actually be worse than Imo's.

There is a Detroit-style pizza place that opened up near me in NYC recently (listed in this article). The pizza is pretty good (and they really embrace the Detroit theme - Motown on the speakers, framed newspaper clippings of Mickey Lolich and the 1968 Tigers on the wall, etc).



   47. stig-tossled, hornswoggled gef the typing mongoose Posted: September 26, 2018 at 11:16 AM (#5752264)
I'll bet they have gallon drums of Lolich & various teammates' spit to add to the pizza sauce.

Well, yeah. Actually, one would probably make a pretty decent weapon if applied upside the head.

As a kid, I loved to (per the instructions on the wrapper) whack Laffy Taffy against a hard service to reduce the bar to bite-sized chunks. Probably not quite as useful for defense or assault purposes.

For a good time order an item with a sauce or condiment on the side. Those little metal ramekins are a pain in the butt to clean and keep clean. Nothing like milky water that's been sitting in the ramekin for 12+ hours to add an extra seasoning to your ketchup.

Glad to hear an actual (IIRC) Brit confirm that. The knife crap just sounds pathetically pretentious.


eh, i saw it in a movie somewhere or something, so i'm sure it's not standard operating procedure.

but yeah, using mccoy's criteria, just about everything is contaminated. i lived in new orleans most of my adult life, and have eaten in restaurants there and have known a number of people who work in the restaurants, heard the stories, and still ate in them. the average human can stand a lot of exposure to little creepy crawly germs.

Yep. I have no idea how germophobes ever eat out. My only other dining companion besides my most immediate co-worker is saddled with that lamentable condition.

Since most of what I've eaten in N.O. has included mud bugs, I'm not sure that I can really complain too much about a little contamination here and there.

Sorry, no. When I make a hard boiled egg, there isn't anything in it that I have to worry about.


This is just a crazy thought. Were you there watching what the chicken was being (force) fed it's entire life? And injected with? Just...wow.
