Needles found in Delta Air Lines sandwiches

  • Needles have been found in sandwiches served on four Delta Air Lines flights bound for the US from the Netherlands, resulting in the FBI opening an investigation into the matter.

    The needles appeared to be sewing needles and were found in five sandwiches prepared by the Amsterdam-based Gate Gourmet.

    One person flying to Minneapolis was injured. Needles were also found on two flights to Atlanta and another to Seattle.

    Delta has said that flights attendants stopped serving the sandwiches as soon as the first needle was discovered, and alerted other flights.
