Pioneer Press reporters found "from 1995-1999 restaurants violated food-safety regulations at least 130,000 times." Violations included unsafe food temperatures, cross-contamination risks, poor employee hygiene and insects/vermin in storage areas. Their investigation discovered that top health officials had given restaurants second, third and fouth chances before issuing penalities and were making deals to keep problems quiet. Above all, consumers were the last to know about code violations until food poisioning had struck.
