Too bad the bill won't be passed before Black Friday. A report from the Today Show indicates that you might want to skip the food court while elbowing crowds for holiday deals - mall restaurants are often filthy. In a three-month study, the show found foods held at the wrong temperatures, critters, and cross-contamination. For example, a worker who used eye drops then handed out food samples without washing her hands. The malls have responded. A Mall of America (Minnesota) spokesperson said that it's hard to feed that many people. Locally, a spokesperson from St. Clair Square in Fairview Heights said that a county health inspector said the mall had no violations as of Thursday.
This place will probably be immaculately clean - Zagat reports that some talking heads from the E! network are planning to open a reality show-themed restaurant. The Vegas restaurant will feature recipes from reality stars and memorabilia from shows. Because dining next to Snooki's dress is so much healthier than food court chow.
