Rodent Droppings ‘Too Numerous to Count’ Found on Delta Jet

Rodent droppings “too numerous to count” were found by U.S. health inspectors near a Delta Air Lines Inc. jet’s galley where food and drink are stored.

The excrement and mammalian urine turned up in inspections from Jan. 26 through Feb. 2 at a Delta hangar at its Atlanta headquarters, the Food and Drug Administration said in an April 13 letter to the airline. Delta said today the plane was cleaned and returned to service within days.
