ST LOUIS (LALATE) – A Delta needles scandal involving turkey sandwiches is prompting an FBI investigation. Delta accidentally offered needles inside turkey sandwiches during four flights to Amsterdam. Luckily, only one person was injured. Officials, however, are trying to determine who was behind the scare.
The FBI’s Atlanta division confirms to news that it has launched a criminal investigation. The announcement comes as one passenger from Minneapolis suffered injuries. The person allegedly declined medical assistance.
But the needles were found in other flights as well. Delta spokeswoman Kristin Baur confirms to news that needles were found also in Atlanta and Seattle flights.
The sandwiches were made in Gate Gourmet, an Amsterdam company. The sandwiches were served in business class. Gate Gourmet spokeswoman Christina Ulosevich says that no other complaints about the sandwiches have been reported by other airlines. “We take this matter very seriously, and we have launched our own full-scale investigation” said their statement to news.
Delta is investigating the matter as well. “Delta is taking this matter extremely seriously and is cooperating with local and federal authorities who are investigating the incident. 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.”
