Needles found in airline sandwiches
Tuesday 17 July 2012
The FBI is investigating how needles came to be placed in sandwiches served on four Delta Airline flights from Amsterdam to the US on Sunday.
The sandwiches were produced by Amsterdam catering company Gate Gourmet, which has launched its own investigation into the incident.
Needles were found in five turkey sandwiches on flights to Atlanta, Seattle and Minneapolis. As soon as the needles were discovered, flight crew replaced the sandwiches with pizza, news agency AP reported.
No similar finds have been made on other flights to the US.
