They always say, "You are what you eat." And in the case of Columbia students, this may be bad news. The results of a health inspection on Friday of John Jay Dining Hall are in—and let's just say they aren't too appetizing. The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, which grades based on an A to C scale, determined the dining hall to have 28 violation points (a C is graded as 28 points or higher).
Because John Jay scored higher than 14 points on this initial inspection, this will count as an ungraded inspection. The inspector will come back sometime in the next couple months for an unannounced inspection, at which point John Jay will get its grade. As of tonight, the A grade from 2013 is still displayed in the dining hall.

I don't know about you, but I never want to hear the words "plumbing," "backflow," and "not properly drained" when describing where I eat my meals. At least now I know why my smoked fish at John Jay is always so warm. Search for John Jay Dining Hall on the offical health department page for more info.
