A fall salmonella outbreak at D.C’s Fig & Olive restaurant — and foodborne illness outbreaks at Chipotle nationwide — have shone a spotlight on food safety issues at both the high and low ends of the menu price spectrum. Now, a recent investigation by the Washington City Paper reveals that pre-made ingredients from an off-site commissary not only provided menu staples to Fig & Olive, but also played a role in the restaurant’s food safety. We learn more about the Fig & Olive investigation, and explore the role commissaries and off-site food preparers contribute to food safety — and to expectations of what goes on our plates.
