According to Canadian news sites this Tuesday, the passenger, who was boarding an Air Canada flight from Victoria, British Columbia to Toronto reported to the airlines of what he found in his sandwich, which was believed to be a sewing needle.

“Safety is always our top priority so we are taking this matter very seriously,” Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick was quoted as saying, adding that unnamed airline caterer has been informed at once right after they learned about the incident.

Mr. Fitzpatrick noted that the airline company is working closely with the caterer to ensure that heightened security measures are being conducted, and that there were no other related incidents reported on other Air Canada flights.

Back in mid-July, some passengers of a Delta flight from Amsterdam to the United States found needles on their turkey sandwiches, where two of them reportedly suffered minor injuries, and is now being investigated by the FBI. The contaminated food was provided by Gate Gourmet, a US company.
