How clean are the kitchens at the AT&T Center?
After an ESPN report called into question the sanitary conditions at sports arenas across the nation, KSAT took a deeper look into recent health inspections at the AT&T Center.
The ESPN report examined health inspections at the AT&T Center from 2016 through 2017 and found that 34 percent of food vendors were cited for "high-level violations."
The report mentioned that mold was found in an ice machine and that tomatoes, blue cheese crumbles and other perishable items were kept at an unsuitable temperature. Additionally, ESPN reported that inspectors found vegetables without food dates that looked "old." Those findings were from March 2017 and October 2016.
Many of the vendors at the AT&T Center have undergone several more recent inspections.
Looking at the three most recent inspections, where applicable, for all facilities subject to health inspections at the AT&T Center, all facilities scored a 95 or higher.
All of the vendors subject to inspections had near-perfect, if not perfect, scores.
Many of the penalties incurred by food vendors at the AT&T Center were in relation to food residue or debris on food containers.
