FEATHERS RUFFLED: Donald Trump
A LAS Vegas restaurant owned by celebrity financier, Donald Trump, was briefly shut down after health inspectors found '51 violations' during a routine inspection.
'DJT', the signature steakhouse at the Trump International Hotel, reopened November 2 with a restored "A'' grade several hours after Southern Nevada Health District officials found problems such as month-old caviar and expired yogurt that dated back to June.
Inspectors reported finding outdated, expired, unlabeled, mishandled and improperly stored food, according to a summary posted on the health district's website. The closure was first reported by KTNV-TV as part of a "Dirty Dining" segment focused on area restaurants.
While ready-to-eat food can be stored for up to seven days, inspectors at DJT also reported finding veal stock and tomato sauce that was almost two weeks old, and expired peanut dressing and black bean chili.
Inspectors found no measures to destroy parasites in undercooked halibut and salmon, and noted that raw tuna was being improperly thawed. Icicles were found in a 'faulty freezer'.
A hotel marketing manager told KTNV that adjustments were made immediately, and delivering an exceptional experience to guests is a top priority.
