Delta Air Lines said a flight from Detroit to Amsterdam had to land in New York City early Wednesday morning because some passenger meals had gone bad during the flight.

Delta Flight 136 landed at John F. Kennedy International Airport around 4 a.m. EDT. Medical teams checked 12 out of the 277 passengers, but they chose to continue their journey instead of going to a hospital.

It’s unclear what was in the spoiled meals or what symptoms some passengers experienced.

Delta’s spokesperson, Lisa Hanna, told CBS News, “Delta’s food safety team has contacted our suppliers to immediately stop using the product and begin a thorough investigation into the incident. This is not the level of service Delta is known for, and we sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and delay.”

This incident follows another Delta flight from Detroit to Munich that was diverted to London due to illness among the flight crew. The crew received medical attention there.
