Jay-Z's 40/40 club shut down amid countless health-code violations

   Jan 22, 12:09 pm

New York, Jan 22 (ANI): Jay-Z's 40/40 Club has been shut down just a day after its star-studded reopening as New York's health department found a slew of health-code violations which put diners at risk.

The club, which had a 10 million dollars re-launch, now faces a dreaded "C" grade.

According to Health Department sources, an inspector found perishable food at dangerously warm temperatures inside the walk-in refrigerator and discovered "hot" food left out on the counter on Thursday, the New York Post reported.

The refrigerator was at 60 degrees instead of 41, which risked the safety of 50 pounds of raw chicken wings, five pounds of raw shrimp and 100 turkey burgers, the sources said.

In the meantime, five pounds of cooked mashed potatoes were left out at a temperature of 89 degrees, while 10 pounds of cooked rice and 50 turkey burgers were kept at 67 degrees.

All the hot foods should be at least 140 degrees, the sources insisted.

The club's restaurant was right away shut, and new patrons were not allowed to enter. Those already inside were allowed to stay put.

"If you have a walk-in place with food like this, you put a hell of a lot of people at risk," said the source.

"A night of dinner and dancing should not include the risk of contracting food-borne illness."

The nightspot corrected the problem and was cleared for business last night.

The club was awarded 69 violation points, far more than 28 needed for a worst-possible "C" grade, and they will be given a ruling at a hearing next month. (ANI)
