JUNEAU- An unannounced federal inspection found unsatisfactory conditions aboard a cruise ship that's spent considerable time in Alaska.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave the Silver Shadow a score of 82 during the June 17 inspection. Scores of 85 or lower are considered unsatisfactory.
A port schedule shows the vessel was in Skagway that day.
The inspection, among other things, found an "organized effort" to remove trolleys of food to individual cabins to avoid inspection. It says out-of-temperature, "potentially hazardous" food was discarded, and the lead inspector poured chlorine over the thrown-out food to ensure it wouldn't be used again.
The chief executive officer of Silversea Cruises says no improperly stored food was given to guests. The company says individuals responsible for the "situation" are no longer with Silversea.
