Hold the mouse droppings, please!

Sports fans expect to pay high prices for stadium food, but they don't always consider the food borne illnesses that may be laying in wait under their bun.

According to ESPN, it recently reviewed the results of health department inspections conducted at more than one-hundred professional sports stadiums. Those inspections reveal that food vendors violated several health code violations.

Inspectors found employees who do not wash their hands, food stored at the wrong temperature and past their expiration dates and cockroaches, just to name a few.

The Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. was one of the worst. It was reported as having 100% of vendors in violation, with mouse droppings found at at least 10 different vendors.
