After the needles were discovered, the passengers got pizza instead?!?!? Really? That is what became an important part of the story? Unbelievable! Hopefully, there were not any knives located in the pizza....

PIZZA? Yeah. So I would pretty much wave off the refreshment cart for the duration of that flight. Good grief. Flying Delta tomorrow with kids. Will pack own granola bars!!!

I hope that Gate Gourmet is investigated thoroughly and the person or persons found are charged..I'm wondering if the majority of employees are citizens of Holland or those who have migrated to Holland and may work for lesser wages? I believe the Muslim population is growing in the Netherlands.

Scarey. Makes me not want to eat anything served by airlines again. Also makes me want to avoid flying even more.

Something we can all get behind--Delta sucks. Being herded like cattle, needles in the food and flying international in 40 year old planes.

DELTA airlines is 100 % at fault here, they are the ones who hired a foriegn company to do what a USA company could have done. I hope they are sued for millions of $$$$.

Finding the bandit will be like looking for a needle in a haystack. The TSA should this one sewed up after a 1 or 2 billion dollars spend.

It's simple - put the meals through a metal detector like we have to go through. Sad but reality these days.
