AIRLINE FOOD REVEALED: Mice, Roaches, Ants and Feces

November 17, 2012

Airline food, it sucks, and now it just got a little more sucky, let me rephrase that, a lot more sucky.

It took four years and a “Freedom of Information Act Request” to get the dirt on the dirty dining airlines are serving to their customers, and it is nothing short of gross.

Welcome to the vile high club, where your food is contaminated with crawling mice, ants, roaches and their feces.

The airline food industry clocked in with an astounding 1,500 health violations, many of them deemed “significant” and at a rate of 100 times that of any other industry the FDA inspects.

“You put that all together, and you have a time bomb,” said Roy Costa, a food-industry consultant and former health inspector.

The FDA reported evidence of mice on Delta Airlines planes. In a statement, the airline said, “This clearly was an isolated incident and we cooperated with the FDA immediately to resolve it immediately after it was brought to our attention. The health and safety of Delta’s customers and employees are Delta’s top priority. We take this issue very seriously and have an established routine servicing program to inspect our aircraft.”

About other conditions found by the FDA, the airline said in a statement, “These FDA inspections, some dating to 2009, are related to inspections of lavatory service trucks and aircraft potable water. We began addressing the action items the FDA set forth immediately. Delta’s deepest core value is the safety of our customers.”

One of the offending food facilities is LSG Sky Chefs, an industry giant that provides food to many airlines. Records showed company food facilities infested with ants crawling over discarded food, flies both dead and alive — and roaches all over.

If insects are in the room, they’re probably in the food, Costa said.
