Restaurant Associates Rebuts Mold Rumors

Congressional diners have nothing to fear.

So says Restaurant Associates spokeswoman Gina Zimmer, who assures HOH that the moldy food bulletin an HOH tipster caught while cutting across the Longworth House Office Building cafeteria was a precautionary tale, not an admission of defeat.

“While the staffer overheard one of our recent food safety training sessions, rest assured there is absolutely NO issue regarding mold in any of our products served at the House and there never has been,” Zimmer relayed a few days after HOH reported on the unsettling menu update.

Per Zimmer, every morning, RA convenes a pre-service meeting at which crew members often openly discuss food-handling concerns.

“At the pre-meal that the aide was present at, our manager was reminding our staff of the RA food quality standards,” she said.

Moreover, Zimmer maintains that when they do encounter spoiled supplies, the suspect offerings are spirited away post-haste.

“If any RA employee sees a product that is not to our specifications, they remove it immediately and bring it back to our receiving department to return back to the vendor,” she said of the company’s quality-control protocol.
