MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Beach restaurant President Barack Obama visited before the Florida primary election has been cited for 26 violations.
A state inspector from the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation found the violations at Jerry's Famous Deli on Tuesday - election day. The violations included potentially hazardous raw and cooked foods kept at improper temperatures, bare-hand contact of bread by employees and improper hand washing.
Jerry's co-owner Jason Starkman says they will throw away any contaminated food.
Jerry's is known for its "sky high" sandwiches. Obama and Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek, who won the party's Senate nomination on Tuesday, ordered corned beef sandwiches.
The restaurant's manager says business is booming with customers asking for "the Obama special."
