UnNews:Passenger finds harpoon in Air Canada sandwich
1 August 2012
CANADA -- A passenger on an Air Canada flight found a whaling harpoon in a catered sandwich during a flight Monday, the airline said. Peter Fitzpatrick, a spokesman for Air Canada, said “Culinary satisfaction is always our top priority so we are taking this matter very seriously,” adding that it appeared to be more than an isolated incident.
The FBI and Dutch authorities are also investigating reports of harpoons found in six sandwiches on Delta flights from Amsterdam to the United States two weeks ago. Moby Dick’s Delicatessen, an old company that provided prepared sandwiches to Delta, said the sandwiches originated at the firm's facility in Amsterdam.
“We are cooperating fully with Air Canada and have complied with our customer's request to its caterers to improve inspection of all products boarded on flights,” said Gate Gourmet spokeswoman Bertha Ahab.
An anonymous expert in airlines safety opined that finding a rusty whaling Harpoon in an airline sandwich is as likely as aliens landing in Area 51. Meanwhile Dutch and U.S. authorities are getting fed up with the problem.
