NEW YORK CITY, New York: Passengers on a Delta flight from Detroit to Amsterdam were served spoiled food this week during in-flight meals, forcing the flight to be diverted to New York.

The redeye left Detroit around 11 p.m. on July 2 and landed in New York at 4 a.m. "after reports that a portion of the Main Cabin in-flight meal service was spoiled," a Delta spokesperson said in a statement.

A Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesperson said medical personnel treated 14 of the plane's 277 passengers and 10 crew members when the flight landed. None required hospitalization.

It was unclear how many passengers and crew consumed the spoiled food.

Delta said it would investigate the incident.

"This is not the service Delta is known for and we sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay in their travels," The Associated Press said quoting the Delta spokesperson.

Hotel rooms were being provided to passengers, who would be rebooked to continue to their destinations.
