    Self-proclaimed as "Central Ohio's premiere catering service," Tufo's To Go is also an airline catering facility, but it has been told to make food-safety improvements.

    In an April 21 warning letter, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) informed Tufo's that its classification as an airline catering facility has been downgraded to "Provisional" status from "Approved."

    After reading this article, I'm actually amazed there aren't (more) incidents of food poisoning involving onboard catering. Could be they don't get reported, could be pax don't recognize symptoms or make the connection to onboard meals or could be it doesn't happen, which I doubt. Perhaps the temps the meals are reheated onboard, kill any bacteria.

    Regarding Tufo's To Go facility problems, I'm sure they're not a lot different than many restaurants we frequent with the exception that Tufo's To Go touches many more meals.
