(AP) – Rhode Island’s Health Department found more than 70 violations in July in concession stands at three state beaches. The same stands are at the center of a state police investigation. The Woonsocket Call reports ( http://bit.ly/1qPjDuT ) the violations at Misquamicut, Scarborough and Roger Wheeler beaches included fish fillets thawed in stagnant water, cans of clam chowder stored in restrooms and fly strips hanging over food preparation areas. Former Democratic Party Chairman David Caprio holds the contract to run the stands. He stepped down this week amid the police investigation into how the contract was awarded. State Rep. Peter Palumbo runs the stands for him. Caprio did not immediately return a message seeking comment Friday. The newspaper reports the violations were found during five inspections in July. The company had until Friday to correct the problems. Information from: The Call, http://www.woonsocketcall.com Copyright 2014 The Associated Press.
