Aside from all of the opinions, I just want to address this one statement:
[QUOTE=cubsblue;1084365]Also note that the very next day CP got a perfect score on the follow up. They corrected every issue even though you generally do not have a follow up for several days, they were ready. It is rare to get a 100% on an inspection but CP did!
(and by no means am I discounting your opinion cubsblue, I just want to address this specific statement and this statement alone. Plus my comment is not directed at you, rather, it’s a “general” overall comment not directed at anyone in particular :happy:)
As we are all are aware, inspections are conducted unannounced so the inspector can review the operation as it’s truly run on a daily basis. And there is no doubt that an operation would be in full compliance after the fact, especially when they know that the inspector will be back for a follow up.
If inspectors advised each and every single operation regarding the relative vicinity of their arrival (week, day, hour) what operation wouldn’t be ready for said inspection? Naturally, extra attention WOULD be paid to the entire facility knowing full well that a health inspection is about to be conducted.
Aside from that, I know of a few businesses, be it wholesale or retail, that have to comply with “military” standards/requirements as well as “kosher” standards/requirements (far more comprehensive compared to the FL State minimum requirements) and the violations that were described in the article (regardless of one’s opinion of the reporters “intentions”) would have never occurred at said facilities. They would lose valuable business and not only are they subjected to unannounced “spot” inspections from the State of FL, but from the organizations mentioned above as well.
So while some of the infractions were relatively minor and some were borderline dangerous (cross contamination, dairy issues, bacteria build up, etc…) , one still needs to run a tight ship especially considering the reputation of the organization, the amount of money that they charge for food (on top of the admission price to get into a park before being allowed to purchase food at a specific restaurant on the premises) and ultimately, the safety of their patrons.
There is no question whatsoever that Disney takes “safety” VERY seriously, but no one is perfect and these issues are of concern…
Like it or not, your employees are a reflection of you (just ask Rupert Murdoch) and sometimes cost cutting measures (my personal opinion as one of the reasons the above most likely occurred) will bite you in the butt.
Will this prevent me from eating at WDW? Of course not. But as I mentioned before, it explains why I could have the same meal at the same restaurant on numerous separate occasions… And still get very ill for an evening and subsequent morning from the very same dish.
And it has happened.
Hoop-Dee-Doo as well as Biergarten, I’m looking at you! :huh:
But I have been back to “both” many times and everything is honky dory.
And now that I think about it, I sense a trend!
Buffets & all you can eat???
