A Delta Airlines flight bound for Amsterdam made an emergency landing at New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport after passengers were served ‘contaminated food.’

Delta flight 136 departed from Detroit, Michigan, and diverted to JFK after airline staff discovered part of the in-flight meal service had spoiled.

Medics were on standby as the flight landed at JFK.

From the New York Post:

Flight attendants contacted medical experts on the ground, who immediately diverted the plane to JFK as it was about to begin its journey across the Atlantic.

The flight landed safely at JFK around 4 a.m. on Wednesday.

Passengers were met by medical personnel upon arrival at the New York City airport.

The flight, which departed from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday, had 277 passengers onboard and was set to land in the Netherlands at 4:15 a.m. local time on July 4.

“Medical crews were on site to meet the aircraft and treat any affected passengers and crew members. Delta teams will immediately work to gather information into how this incident occurred,” a Delta spokesperson told Daily Mail.

“This is not the service Delta is known for and we sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay in their travels,” the spokesperson added.

Per Daily Mail:

It is not yet known how many passengers consumed the spoiled food.

But medics met the plane after it landed at JFK to provide treatment any passengers and crew members who had been affected.

A Delta spokesperson told its teams are probing the incident and have issued an apology to its costumers.
