St John’s Food Violations –


I was skimming through New York’s Department of Health website checking out the health violation points for some of my favorite restaurants around campus and I came across these startling numbers –

FYI the average points in an inspection in New York City is 15 

Montgoris Dining Hall  – 19 violations for (Montgoris was inspected just a couple of days ago)


Other general violation.


Food contact surface not properly maintained.


Wiping cloths dirty or not stored in sanitizing solution.


Sanitized equipment or utensil, including in-use food dispensing utensil, improperly used or store



Marillac Dining Hall – 22 violations for


Food not protected from potential source of contamination during storage, preparation, transportation, display or service.


Cold food held above 41°F (smoked fish above 38°F) except during necessary preparation.


Hot food not held at or above 140°F.

You can see the rest of school’s dining facilities points here.

What else caught my attention? Some of these locations off campus  

   Sly Fox Inn had the most violation points with 45 

Yummy Taco had 26

Dominoes Pizza had 28

Subway only had 4 violations

I know roaches might be a delicacy in some parts of the world; but they are definitely not one in mine

    Hi, I am from Malaysia. Now, I am working on a school books about vectors that pollute human food. I found the photo (roach feast) is a very good picture that explains a lot. Therefore, I am seeking your permission to use this photo in my book. I will have the photo credits for you. If it is not so difficult for you, I hope to have a higher resolution of the photo too.

    Your help is very much appreciated.
