Kitchen Controversy: Reports Find 'High Priority' Health Violations at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Estate
The inspection took place just before President Trump and the first lady hosted Japan's prime minister.
The reports say inspectors found "high-priority violations [that] could allow the presence of illness-causing bacteria on plates served in the dining room."
The routine health inspection took place on January 26, less than a week after Trump's inauguration and about two weeks before the president and first lady hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
The health inspectors found violations inside the compound’s kitchen, where raw fish had not undergone proper parasite destruction and uncooked meat was stored at temperatures deemed too warm.
According to the agency, the violations “could contribute directly to a foodborne illness or injury.”
The president is known to take a great interest in the day-to-day operation of Mar-a-Lago's kitchen, as well as the ones in his other properties.
Since the scathing report, the violations in Mar-a-Lago's kitchen have been corrected and health inspectors have decided it now meets the "minimum standards."
Last week, Trump hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping and he said they dined on chocolate cake as he gave the approval for a Tomahawk missile strike on a Syrian airbase.
