Pepto, Please! Fenway Park Concessions Fail City Health Inspections

Yuck! The concessions at Fenway Park are looking eerily similar to the performance of the Red Sox from 1919-2003. This week, the New York Times released a study of best and worst food options at many MLB stadiums across the country and the Fenway hot dogs were clearly listed in the DO NOT EAT category. While the poor concessions rating was a disappointment for Massholes worldwide, this new information just released has got to make New Englanders' stomachs quiver. Fenway Park's food stands, operated by Aramark, "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," according to a front-page piece by John Drake of the BOSTON GLOBE. Violations were "significant enough to pose a risk of food poisoning for patrons, even though they had virtually the same set of problems in an examination more than a week earlier and demanded corrective action." Bottom line is if you have been avoiding the food at Fenway, keep doing so!
