On Tuesday, what appeared to be sewing needles, or something similar, were found in six separate turkey sandwiches onboard more than one Delta Airlines flight bound for the US. The sandwiches are being flown back to Amsterdam today to undergo forensic analysis in an attempt to determine how the needles got into the sandwiches. The Dutch police are heading the investigation, with the cooperation of the FBI, the airline, and the catering company that made the sandwiches.
Police are currently interviewing the staff of Delta Airlines and of Gate Gourmet, the catering company that made the sandwiches and that is one of the largest airline caterers in the world. A spokesperson for Delta said that six sandwiches were found on flights to Minneapolis, Atlanta, and Seattle, four of which were found by passengers. One passenger was poked in the roof of the mouth as he bit into his sandwich, but the injury was not serious. Security has been increased at all Gate Gourmet facilities.
