Airline food: Not only poor but downright dangerous

It's almost an oxymoron that airlines serve food, real edible food, on board. Airline food has been the butt of jokes for many years now. But, as a report by the US FDA finds, the food may even be dangerous to eat.

TravelMole reports in "Airline Food: It just got worse":

"Even in the earlier good times, airline food was often suspect and invariably bad. But in recent days, the food you get in the air may have been visited by cockroaches, both living and dead, among other undesirable conditions.

The stomach-turning inspections were conducted over the last two years at the US facilities of two of the world's biggest airline caterers, LSG Sky Chefs and Gate Gourmet, and another large caterer, Flying Food Group, according to reports obtained through the Freedom of Information Act."

"Southeastern Australia has suffered through a series of brutal heat waves over the past two months, with temperatures reaching a scorching 113 degrees Fahrenheit in some parts of the state of New South Wales.

“It was nothing short of awful,” said Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick, of the Climate Change Research Center at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney. “In Australia, we’re used to a little bit of heat. But this was at another level.”

So Dr. Perkins-Kirkpatrick, who studies climate extremes, did what comes naturally: She looked to see whether there was a link between the heat and human-driven climate change.

Her analysis, conducted with a loose-knit group of researchers called World Weather Attribution, was made public on Thursday. Their conclusion was that climate change made maximum temperatures like those seen in January and February at least…
