Inspection at MAPFRE Stadium reveals health code violations


COLUMBUS -- An inspection of several concession stands inside of MAPFRE Stadium revealed a list of violations including issues with drainage and the presence of mouse droppings inside one of the kitchens.

Columbus Public Health conducted inspections on nine concession stands Wednesday and found violations at all but one of them.

According to the report, some violations were corrected at the time of the inspection such as the disposal of three dozen cooked brats being stored in a cooler without a date.

Other infractions, such as the presence of rodent dropping inside one of the kitchen areas, were given a comply-by day of May 23.

Concessions at MAPFRE Stadium are run by Levy Restaurants, a concession management group out of Chicago.

10TV received the following statement from Levy:

Our team has worked diligently with third-party food safety and sanitation experts to address the concerns identified during the recent health inspection visit. We have corrected the issues and are conducting additional food handling and storage training with our culinary team members. The health department will be reinspecting the stadium this afternoon.

A follow-up inspection Friday by Columbus Public Health found no violations at the stadium.
