NEW FOOD HALL GETS A TIME OUT:
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports the Time Out Food Market was shuttered by the health department on Wednesday, July 11th for multiple violations. The most egregious citation is improper cold food storage temperatures. A communal refrigerator where inspectors found the appliance to be 58 degrees instead of the federally mandated 41. As a result 14 of the 21 eateries were slapped with violations causing the complete closure of the market. The food hall, which only opened on May 31st, remains closed. We will update the story as more information becomes available.
