Inspectors find safety flaws where airline food is prepared

"Six months ago, Food and Drug Administration inspectors say, they found live roaches and dead roach carcasses "too numerous to count" inside the Denver facility of the world's largest airline caterer, LSG Sky Chefs.

They also reported finding ants, flies and debris, and employees handling food with bare hands. Samples from a kitchen floor tested positive for Listeria, a bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. It's also dangerous to pregnant women."

If they're so sloppy with food, I wonder what else they're sloppy with...:mg:

How about maintenance?

I'm scared now...;)

Do you really think your corner deli, all you can eat buffet, or Chinese restaurant are any better? A friend of mine is a health inspector for Michigan and I doubt this would shock her based on what she has told me about. Fast food places tend to be the cleanest she tells me - with White Castle being tops.

It's shocking news to me....... because i thought this kind of thing would only happen in some third world country...... I wonder which airline LSG Sky Chefs supply to......
Talking about fast food chain store, i personally had an experience in a fast food store in south east asia, i found a baby roaches inside my coke, i noticed it half way drinking. :mad: The store manager came to have a look and just replace me with another coke without even apologize....... :frust:

I'm not worried. I can't remember the last time a domestic flight served food! And I don't travel trans-Atlantic much.

I've seen as bad in the airport terminal - LHR where I was waiting to pay and saw a roach scuttling along by the coffee machine.

Just another example of journalists trying to get folks excited now they've worn out the latest oil spill/Jennifer Anniston/Lady Gaga news:notme::rolleyes:
