Cape Canaveral Departing Cruise Vessel Fails CDC Health Check Due to Multiple Violations – WFTV

The MSC Seaside cruise ship departed from Cape Canaveral a month ago, but it has already failed its health inspections with a low score. The CDC regularly conducts unannounced inspections as part of the sanitation program of ships docked in US waters. The MSC Seaside cruise ship received a score of 67 out of 100, which is a disastrous result. The Cruise Line immediately took action to rectify the problem, and an internal investigation has been launched.

The CDC test records revealed several health violations, such as raw meat at the buffet station left dripping with bloody fluids, hamburger blood on the refrigerator door, and the food servicing crew not washing their hands. To add to this, the food was being kept at temperatures that were unsafe for consumption.

Seaside Cruises Co. has been conducting regular inspections on its ships since 2004, and in the past, the company has scored a higher score of 94.5%. The Cruise ship spokeswoman stated that the company is taking measures to ensure that this does not happen again.
