Flies, Cockroaches, and Mice Found in Airline Caterers' Kitchens

Newsflash: Airline food is just as disgusting as it tastes. USA Today got its hands on the Food and Drug Administration’s reports on LSG Sky Chefs, Gate Gourmet, and Flying Food Group – three airline caterers who serve more than 100 million on board meals each year – and found that the companies prepare many in-flight dishes in completely unsanitary, and often downright sickening, conditions. In many of the caterers’ 91 kitchens, employers stored food at the wrong temperatures, cooked on dirty equipment, and ignored proper hygiene practices. Even creepier, the FDA reports say inspectors spotted cockroaches, flies, and mice at more than one facility. Let’s all breath a collective sigh of relief that Continental will shelve most domestic meals this fall – and vow to brown bag it on our next vacations.
