A USA TODAY review of inspection records for nearly 800 restaurants at 10 airports found items such as tuna salad and turkey sandwiches stored at dangerously warm temperatures, raw meat contaminating ready-to-eat foods, rat droppings and kitchens lacking soap for workers to wash hands.

Serious violations, which can increase the risk of illness, are common. On the most recent inspections available online, 42% of 57 restaurants reviewed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport had at least one "critical" violation. So did 77% of 35 restaurants reviewed at Reagan National Airport...

If I'm at an airport and happen to need food, yeah
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/3/10 - 1:34:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
When I'm hungry, absolutely. Its the only thing to really do while waiting for your next flight. Explore stores and eat stuff.

11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/21/10 - 5:22:59 PM EST (GMT-5)

11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 7/21/10 - 5:30:39 PM EST (GMT-5)

11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/22/10 - 4:38:29 AM EST (GMT-5)

11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 7/22/10 - 6:37:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
My airport purchases never go further then chocolate bars and a milkshake.

soooooooo, basically you're saying these places have sh*tty and/or poorly-enforced food-safety regulations. this has nothing to do with airports, only that it's harder to track foodborne illness outbreaks.

"A worker handled raw chicken, then bread without changing gloves Aug. 27 at Cibo Bistro & Wine Bar at Reagan National Airport." Really? yeah, that's a big no-no, not to mention really disgusting, but workers do that at places everywhere...

I do get airport food sometimes, usually from the Burger King at San Jose airport.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/5/10 - 4:00:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
If Im not the one paying for it, sure but its usually over priced and smaller portions than you would get at those same restaurants outside of an airport.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/5/10 - 4:20:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. but i don't like it.

(I mean, in the plane, not the airport overpriced junk food)
