Donald Trump's Las Vegas Restaurant Shut Down By Health Inspectors for Keeping Meat MONTHS Out After Expiration Date
Donald Trump usually loves to be in the headlines - but his latest moment in the spotlight is less positive than he might like. The outspoken tycoon's Las Vegas restaurant was shut down by health inspectors this week after racking up dozens of violations.
The insanitary conditions at the upscale eatery included meat and fish that was weeks old, as well as racks of cooked food kept at dangerous temperatures.DJT, located in the Trump Hotel Las Vegas, claims to be 'one of the most impressive venues for hotel fine dining on the Las Vegas Strip'.But earlier this week it was ordered to be closed by the Southern Nevada Health District following a snap inspection, according to KTNV.
The majority of the 51 violations recorded related to keeping expired food - restaurants are usually expected to throw out any fresh ingredients which are more than about a week old.Trump's restaurant was found to have kept products such as tomato sauce and cranberry juice for a week or more past their expiration dates.
Its treatment of meat was apparently even more cavalier, with month-old caviar and duck from as far back as June forming part of the restaurant's supplies.DJT was accused of potentially endangering diners by serving undercooked fish, while much of the food which was cooked properly was subsequently kept at temperatures which rendered it unsafe. Bacon, sausages, potatoes and vegetables were all left sitting in trays to cool before being served to customers.
When inspectors looked in to the restaurant's storage systems, they found that food was being improperly kept and often unlabelled. The scene in the freezer was not only insanitary but dangerous, with parts of the floor covered in ice.After being shut down, the restaurant moved quickly to deal with the recorded violations and was allowed to re-open a few hours later.In a statement, the hotel said: 'We take these situations very seriously and all adjustments were made immediately. DJT opened within a few hours that same evening.'We greatly value our guests, and delivering an exceptional experience to them is our top priority.' Trump Hotel Las Vegas opened in 2008 as the tallest residential building in the city.

Will he find a way to blame Obama for this?

If he claimed that Republicans were being punished after the Democratic victory, I wouldn't be at all surprised.

Did they find a "hair" in the food? They need to send it for DNA analysis to verify the origin of the dead animal he's wearing on his head.

Was it some lion or elephant that his sons brought back from safari. Because that's hard to come by.

Vegas's Health Dept is so corrupt and incompetent; I'm really shocked that they actually did something.

Las Vegas health inspectors have confirmed what the rest of us long suspected: Donald Trump's meat is old, rotten and not fit for human consumption.

The meat went stale while they were out looking for its birth certificate.

The restaurant was allowed to reopen in a few hours? WTF?
I was hoping Harry Reid was pulling strings behind the scenes to put heat or at least scrutiny on the Trump operation there. The bad PR alone from something like this can have legs.

R16, I told you Vegas Health Dept is a joke. Mr. Sands, the head, "has his head in the sand." Their excuse is that "too many people would suffer if the restaurant was out of business." Most Vegas governmental employees get their jobs because they know the right people, not because they can perform their jobs responsibly. That's why so many in NV are Libertarian or even Repub; we've all seen too much governmental fraud.
