Stadium plagued by rodent problems

November 11, 2009

The Marion County Health Department has issued dozens of citations and thousands of dollars in fines over the past year to the company that has a $13 million contract to provide food service at Lucas Oil Stadium. Health inspectors have reported mice droppings, pests and/or rodents, and food that's unsafe or in unsound condition. South Carolina-based catering company Centerplate Inc. released a statement Tuesday saying it takes the food violations seriously and will use a special team to inspect each concession area at the stadium. Colts officials sent an e-mail to season-ticket holders Tuesday night saying “the entities directly in control of food operations at Lucas Oil Stadium, Centerplate and the (Capital Improvement Board), have assured us that they are thoroughly investigating the report and that any issues they identify will be corrected immediately.” Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
