Uh Oh: KLM May Have Served Inflight Meals With Listeria

by Chris Dong

Brekkie with a side of…listeria? KLM is notifying passengers that they may have consumed food which may have been infected with the bacteria. The apparent culprit is a breakfast meat supplier specifically for business class.

The listeria issue is widespread enough that KLM has also set up a page with the alert on their website.

We (KLM) have been informed by one of our suppliers of meat products that their production location might have been infected with listeria. Therefore, it might be possible that infected meat products have been served as breakfast in our Business Class.”

All currently served meals are not affected, but this potential contamination was only discovered in the past few days. A friend who flew KLM business class on October 2, 2019 from Amsterdam to New York received the email yesterday.

KLM notes that passengers on KLM Cityhopper are also not impacted. The airline is urging customers to contact them if they’re concerned and to confirm whether their flight was affected.

According to the CDC, listeria symptoms vary from person to person but could include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions in addition to fever and muscle aches. Pregnant women and older adults are most susceptible to contracting listeria.
