Fenway Park Ranks 2nd In Study Of Ballpark Food Safety

BOSTON (CBS) — According to one recent study, you can feel better about chowing down on those Fenway franks.

Sports Illustrated released their ranking of the ballparks Tuesday using info from public health inspection records across the US and Canada, and Fenway Park came in second place.

The ranking found the Sox’ home field had a total of 30 food safety violations last year, with only two of those violations categorized as “critical”–meaning violations that could have led to spreading food-borne illness.
