GROSS!: They Served ‘Black Mold’ Covered Food?!

( – A nauseating incident in which “spoiled food” precipitated an emergency landing of a Delta Air Lines flight in New York City has involved gross meals covered in “black mold,” according to a report.

This has been revealed by The New York Post, which cites its own sources.

According to the sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity, a minimum of 24 passengers reported illness after consuming the contaminated food on the flight destined for Amsterdam, the Netherlands, which made an unscheduled landing just after 3 a.m. at JFK Airport.

Initially, air traffic control communicated to the airport that up to 70 passengers may have been affected.

However, only two dozen were actually treated for symptoms by emergency medical services. Fortunately, there were no hospitalizations.

The severity of the situation necessitated that the aircraft, originating from Detroit, divert its course back to JFK, after reaching as far as Newfoundland in Canada, according to flight data.

The specific details of the contaminated meal remain unknown, but Delta acknowledged the issue with the meal service in the main cabin in their statement, confirming the spoilage of food items.

All 277 passengers of the flight were provided hotel accommodations overnight, with plans to resume their journey Wednesday evening, as indicated by sources.

One passenger, identified as Virginia, expressed dissatisfaction with the provided solutions on social media platform X.

“I don’t need hotel/food vouchers I need to arrive in Amsterdam today,” she wrote.

In response, Delta requested that she contact them privately.

Virginia later updated her followers that she had been rescheduled on a new flight set for 4:30 p.m. the following Thursday, commenting, “Not there yet. 30 hours of travel later, 6am tomorrow. Fingers and toes crossed.”

Following the incident, Delta issued a formal apology.

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