Trump's Mar-a-Lago Cited for Gross Health Code Violations — Again

That's not where the hot dogs go...

Donald Trump’s famous Florida property Mar-a-Lago has been cited for maintenance violations — again.

A recent inspection of the property revealed a number of issues. The bed-and-breakfast component of the resort required emergency repairs to pass its most recent inspection in November, according to the Miami Herald.

It was nevertheless cited for two violations considered high priority because they could “pose a direct or significant threat” to the public, such as the lack of smoke detectors capable of alerting hearing impaired guests by way of flashing lights instead of just audible cues, and sections of missing concrete exposing steel rebar on a staircase.

As well, the kitchens at Trump’s beloved club were cited for 15 violations, according to the Herald. The two main kitchens violated proper food storage codes — including milk stored well above the temperature deemed ideal for safety, and hot dogs stored too low to the ground. Even with these violations, the kitchens technically passed inspection.

This is not the first time Mar-a-Lago has been cited. Last February, just before a state visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, inspectors found sushi fish that hadn’t been properly treated for parasites, and other violations.
