Baseball is back! Hope the Ice Machine Mould at KC Stadium Is Not!!!

When dealing with ice machine sanitation, there are many unfortunate and tragic risks for ice machine operators who don’t properly sanitize their machines.

Bad publicity, however, is often overlooked. The bad publicity generated from health code violations, however, can be damning for small business owners and large corporate facilities alike.

Bad publicity and national exposure can come from even rumors of unsafe food conditions. This is especially true when someone from inside a facility goes on the record about alleged health code violations. This article in Sports Illustrated perfectly illustrates the bad publicity that can stem from alleged health code violations.

The article describes the serious health code violation found at Kauffman and Arrowhead Stadiums in Kansas City, including ice machine mould growth. These violations were reported by the stadium’s food safety manager, not the health department. Even lacking official statements or reports, nationally-recognized Sports Illustrated picked up the story.

ICEZONE, while unable to address issues like employee hand washing violations, could have saved the Kansas City stadium from the bad publicity that comes with mould and slime in ice machines.

ICEZONE is an automated ice machine sanitation system that reduces the number of required manual ice machine cleanings by up to 75%. ICEZONE prevents slime, mould, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast from growing on the surfaces of ice machines. 

Its ability to eliminate over 99% of surface micro-contamination is verified by independent third-party party test labs.
