If you're traveling this holiday season, take note: USA Today has reviewed the food-inspection records for 10 airports -- including, of course, Dallas-Fort Worth International -- and dug up some unappetizing demerits.

Most common violation: Food's not properly refrigerated. Says Tarrant County inspector David Jefferson, "The grab-and-go sandwich problem, it's a constant battle." Yes, before you eat it. And, after.
