Airline Safety: Another Needle Found In Airplane Food

air canada Two weeks ago, we told you about how six Delta passengers were horrified to find needles in their airline sandwiches. While we were hoping it was a one-time incident, it seems passengers really do need to be extra careful when eating their on-board meals. In the last case, the flights were leaving from Amsterdam; however, Air Canada has confirmed a sewing needle was found in the food on a Canadian flight this week.

Although the two events are suspiciously similar, police say it's too early to connect them, especially since a different caterer was used in both incidences.

According to TIME, in both situations, the sewing needles were found by passengers eating a pre-packaged, catered sandwich. The passenger wasn't hurt, and neither Delta or Air Canada have reported any other needles being discovered.

Air Canada says they are working with their caterer to "ensure heightened security measures." Moreover, police have stepped in to investigate while the FBI and Dutch authorities continue attempts to solve the case from July.
