A man sitting in a Business Elite Cabin onboard a Delta flight from Amsterdam to Minneapolis-St. Paul was eating a sandwich and enjoying his flight. During his second bite of the sandwich a needle punchured the roof of his mouth and he is now on anti-HIV medicine.
According to this WSJ article, this is one of four instances where needles were found onboard Delta flights from Amsterdam on Sunday.
Delta released a statement saying Delta “has taken immediate action with our in-flight caterer at Amsterdam to ensure the safety and quality of the food we provide onboard our aircraft.”
The needles were found in sandwhiches from the gate gourmet company. The sandwiches have been removed and replaced with pizzas.
This is now being treated as an FBI investigation.
