ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Health inspectors reported finding far fewer food violations at this year's Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
The Consumer Health Protection Division tallied 56 violations involving 42 vendors.
That's down from 133 in 2011 and 70 in 2012.
The division believes the change is the result of better supervision by food concessions manager Ovations Food Services. It says the most significant reductions in violations involved proper temperatures for foods and the use of sanitizer.
Ovations took over management of the concessions before the 2012 fiesta in a controversial move criticized by some long-time vendors.
