Delta Air Lines served up needles that were found in sandwiches, which horrified the passengers during their flight, but the United States Government does not feel this is an act of terrorism.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), has procedures to “ensure the security of the (airline) catering process,” stated spokesman David Castelveter.
“TSA conducts ongoing inspections to ensure airlines and contractors comply with these security requirements,” he added.
Jim Tonjes bit into a turkey sandwich that contained inch-long needles while on a flight to the U.S. from Amsterdam.
“Six needles, which appear to be used for sewing, were found Sunday in six turkey sandwiches made for business-class passengers flying from Amsterdam on two flights to Atlanta and flights to Minneapolis and Seattle,”stated Delta spokeswoman Kristin Baur.
Luckily, there was only one minor injury reported from this horrifying discovery. According to Delta, all the sandwiches were prepared in Amsterdam at Gate Gourmet, which is one of the world’s largest independent airline caterers.
“We are treating this as a criminal act,” stated Gate Gourmet spokeswoman Christina Ulosevich.
“The company also is cooperating fully with investigations by local and federal authorities and by our customer (Delta),” Ulosevich added.
