Could Health Department Crush Corona Custom?

Bar Cited for Hand-on-Lime Violation

By Published on .

Only in New York, folks. Only in New York. Among a list of health-code infractions at a local bar was this gem: "A male worker observed having bare-hand contact with one slice of ready-to-eat lime while placing on top of beer bottle for patron in bar."

As The New York Times asks in this in-depth look into yet another assault on common sense: How else is the lime supposed to get there? Tongs or, yum, latex gloves.

I can't imagine what this would do to Corona's bar sales if bartenders simply stopped putting limes in the bottles.
