DANGEROUS FOOD

Needle Found in Air Canada Sandwich

Yet another needle was found in an airplane sandwich this week, this time on an Air Canada flight from Victoria, British Columbia, to Toronto. The FBI and Dutch authorities are still in the midst of an investigation into needles found in six sandwiches aboard Delta flights from Amsterdam to the U.S. that were catered by a Gate Gourmet facility in Amsterdam. While Gate Gourmet does provide food for Air Canada, the company said it does not cater to flights out of Victoria. "We are cooperating fully with Air Canada and have complied with our customers’ request to its caterers to heighten food safety procedures, including inspection and screening of all products boarded on flights," a Gate Gourmet spokeswoman said. "We are working closely to support our customers, including cooperating with authorities investigating the incident."
