NYU Dining Hall Serviced By Chartwells, Barnard’s New Provider, Fails Health Inspection

Hope this doesn’t happen in Diana!

Last week, Palladium, an NYU dining hall served by Chartwells, failed health inspection, Washington Square News reports. Just like Barnard, NYU switched dining providers from Aramark to Chartwells this year following student protests.

“Flies and improperly refrigerated food” were the main cause of the failure, according to Washington Square News.

New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene uses a point system. Anything over 27 points is a C, the lowest grade possible. Palladium received a 46 for four different violations, three of which were critical.

“The health and safety of our guests is always our top priority,” said a representative of Chartwells in a statement to Bwog. She added that they had been “aggressively grappling” with fruit flies since they took over operations of Palladium.

Read the full statement from Chartwells Higher Education below.

“At Chartwells Higher Education, the health and safety of our guests is always our top priority. Last week, the NYC Department of Health conducted an inspection of our Palladium Dining Hall at NYU that resulted in a pending grade of C. The violations that are currently pending are the result of improperly refrigerated food and fruit flies in an area where food is not actively prepared, served or stored. We have been aggressively grappling with the second issue since we took over operations of the Palladium dining hall this summer. We have brought in New York pest control specialists multiple times, conducted deep cleanings, and had third-party audit inspections.  Those efforts have not been effective enough, so now we’re redoubling our efforts and have hired an independent entomologist to help us better identify the source so that we can take care of this issue completely and permanently. We will be reviewing our food storage violations with the department of health upon our hearing in mid-October

We are confident that through our consultation with the entomologist, as well as additional trainings for our staff, the concerns will be completely addressed and the problems fixed.”
