Trump's Mar-a-Lago Resort Cited for Poor Maintenance

Trump used to be involved in the day-to-day operations but as he jumped into presidential politics so did the number of health violations. There were only two violations in the kitchens in 2015- the early stages of his campaign

Florida state restaurant inspectors found food safety issues and building problems at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach during a November visit, almost a year after a previous visit turned up food violations at the private club.

The resort was also cited for a staircase with an exposed steel bar.

The health inspectors also said kitchen staff was neglectful in checking the freshness of the ingredients leading to potentially hazardous food. The two main kitchens were written up for improper food storage, including milk that was stored at the wrong temperature and hot dogs stored on the ground floor of the freezer, according to the records.

The kitchens did pass the inspections on the first try.


Included among the food violations found in Mar-a-Lago's kitchens on November 8 were the improper storage and marking of foods, such as dairy stored at temperatures exceeding 41 degrees F (in this case, it was milk stored at 49 F), and hot dogs stored on the floor of a walk-in freezer, among others.

Trump entertained Japanese President Abe and his wife at Mar-a-Lago in February 2017, shortly after a previous state inspection cited one of the kitchens for the intent to serve raw fish that had "not undergone proper parasite destruction". A week before a visit from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, inspectors cited sushi that was ready for consumption that had "not undergone proper parasite destruction" and food stored in broken coolers that at temperatures high enough to cause spoilage.

Mar-a Lago is no stranger to such violations and the exclusive resort racked up 78 citations in the three years before 2017, with violations including dirty cutting boards, "black/green mold-like substance" in the ice machine, and chefs who handled food without washing their hands, according to reports.

The White House, which Trump once reportedly called a "real dump", has also been overrun with cockroaches, ants and mice, according to work orders obtained by NBC in November.
