Safest food in the NFC South?

As we get ready for a season, here’s something that might be of interest. It’s an inspection report for all of the food vendors at every stadium and arena for pro sports.

According to the survey, Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium is the worst place for fans to buy food in the NFC South. In terms of critical violations, 84 percent of the vendors had them. For the record, Tampa Bay might be the worst area to eat at a professional sports game. Tropicana Field, home of the Rays, had 100 percent of the vendors with critical violations and the St. Pete Times Forum, home of the Lightning, had 88 percent of its vendors with critical violations.

The Louisiana Superdome had the best rating of the NFC South stadiums. The home of the Saints had only 12 percent of vendors with critical violations. The Georgia dome was second at 32 percent and Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium had 55 percent.
