According to the survey, one of the worst offenders in the U.S. was Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays. That arena had a 100 per cent score of its vendors with critical violations. The inspection report noted that “several violations addressed dirty countertops, utensils and equipment. Although every report indicated a critical violation, all vendors met basic inspection standards to keep operating.”

The following list is culled from inspection reports for MLB, NBA, NHL and NFL venues in the United States and Canada operating in 2009. Results based on most recent routine inspections or equivalent of a full inspection. The score is based on the percentage of vendors in violation of health requirements.

Use your percentages here.

Canada 7.2% failure - Average.
US 32% failure - Average.

Also, worse case in Canada was improper temperature and unclean utensils.

Worse case in the US was rodents, droppings and roaches.

You could have put it in recipe central!
I wonder if there is anything other than sport that would put people in these facilities?

Doesn't matter. It's percentage. We can do per capita (Capacity) if you want. We'd get similar results.

I saw the same thing on the news last night too. They agree, stadiums in Canada are much safer, but I never eat at the games anyhow so I never had anything to worry about. LOL

This is crazy. Good to see Ontario doing things the right way though. Better yet, good to see something go right in the ACC at all.

Sources say that Edmonton officials have yet to see the results of the inspections, as they are still in shock that somebody actually agreed to come to Edmonton in the first place.
