Wrigley & The Cell ; Come For The Food Poisoning, Stay For The Poisonous Baseball

Posted in Baseball, Food at 11:24 am by

The Chicago Tribune’s Jarred S. Hopkins reports Chicago health inspectors found myriad violations when visiting Wrigley Field and U.S. Cellular Field concession stands this month, including but not limited to the vague (and terrifying) “poor hygienic practices”.  Who’d have thought the nacho helmet might be bad for you?

During an inspection at the Cell last week, officials found 15 critical violations, or those that pose the highest health risk, records show. Food valued at about $350 was thrown away. In August at Wrigley, inspectors found 20 critical violations and more than 30 pounds of food worth $215 were tossed. Inspectors recorded an additional nine critical violations on a return visit to Wrigley last week.

    Neither is AT&T Park in San Francisco, that’s for sure. Great ball, fabulous setting, AND top-flight food. *sigh*
