A refreshments employee at Comerica Park stadium in Detroit has been accused of tampering with the pizza dough while he was preparing an order for a customer.
On September 21, when the Detroit Tigers played against the Kansas City Royals at Comerica Park stadium, a man working for the company that supplies the food during events held at the location was reportedly preparing a pizza.
