    You're accustomed to airline food that's bland, tepid or otherwise unappetizing. You're probably not accustomed to hearing that it was prepared or stored in areas crawling with mice, ants and roaches.​

    But that's what the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) saw when it inspected airlines and their outside caterers.​

    Through a Freedom of Information Act request, "20/20" obtained lists of recent health violation records from the FDA, the agency in charge of inspecting airlines and their outside food caterers.​

    Over almost four years, the industry counted more than 1,500 health violations. "Significant" problems were found at a much higher rate than in other industries the FDA inspects, the agency said.​

    "You put that all together, and you have a time bomb," said Roy Costa, a food-industry consultant and former health inspector.​

    So the FDA watched mice and roaches inspect airline food?

    Did the food pass the inspection of the vermin?
