A man flying from Atlanta to Miami discovered maggots crawling on the sandwich he purchased at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Wednesday. According to Channel 2 Action News, Joel Woloshuk purchased his infested focaccia sandwich from Café Intermezzo, a franchise located in Terminal B. Woloshuk told Channel 2, "What I thought was parmesan, right? And the parmesan began to move."
Café Intermezzo's president told Channel 2 that he blames the incident on their bread vendor. He claims all products from that supplier have been discarded and that they are no longer working together. The bread supplier denies any wrong-doing, having passed a Department of Agriculture inspection last week. Café Intermezzo also passed a health inspection which was prompted by this incident.
Now, in an effort to enhance food security, Atlanta's Department of Aviation will be giving managers at airport restaurants ultraviolet lights to inspect food shipments. Woloshuk took video footage of the sandwich that clearly shows the maggots, and also saved the sandwich to show to Channel 2. Go, watch:
