Donald Trump's retreat in Florida hit with food safety violations

The Trump helicopter is seen at the Mar-a Lago Resort

Mar-a-Lago, nicknamed the "Winter White House", has been slapped with a total of 55 citations since 2014, which is as far back as the state's database goes. The Herald reports inspectors gave the kitchen a passing grade after the staff addressed those 13 violations.

This included raw and undercooked fish that had "not undergone proper parasite destruction", and meats - chicken, duck, beef, ham, etc. - that were stored at potentially unsafe temperatures.

The remaining violations were not major and, again, the club "Met Inspection Standards" when all was said and done on the final report.

President Donald Trump may want to consider swinging by the kitchen when he visits his plush Mar-a-Lago resort this weekend.

Trump, of course, doesn't run Mar-a-Lago himself; he technically can't, pursuant to agreements he made to keep his businesses at arm's length or further while he serves as President.

The report indicated some of the violations "could allow the presence of illness-causing bacteria on plates served in the dining room".

Schiff has declined to comment on the contents of the documents, while Nunes has said they caused him concern. These names are usually redacted or even given vague descriptors like "Male 1".

Potentially hazardous foods like red meat, chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, shrimp and ham were stored at higher than regulation temperatures, the inspectors found.

The Miami Herald reported that the state inspection came just days before Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the club. One door cooler on cook line shrimp (49°F - Cold Holding); burger (49°F - Cold Holding); turkey (50°F - Cold Holding); octopus (50°F - Cold Holding), hotdog 49°, chef moved items to walk-in cooler.

Two fridges were not in working order, and had to be emptied and repaired. Most recently, Trump hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"These infractions were part of a routine inspection and were not complaint-based". This violation was also corrected on site.
