Description

The student-staffed wire service at the University of Maryland investigates food preparation and storage inspections "at the restaurants and concession stands that feed millions of fans who visit Maryland's three major league sports stadia every year." The story identifies multiple failures of the restaurants and stands to comply with the health standards. The reporters reveal problems pertaining to the quality of food, including "undercooked and stale food" and "evidence of vermin." The story points out that inspections are "sporadic, at best," and questions the "sloppy reports" on the problems.
