ATLANTA — A restaurant executive said Wednesday that the company switched bread vendors after a customer found a cluster of maggots on his sandwich at Atlanta’s airport.

Weekly traveler Joel Woloshuk told WSB-TV that he bought a sandwich from Café Intermezzo and realized the white specks on top of it were maggots — not parmesan — when they began writhing across the bun.

In a statement to WSB-TV, Café Intermezzo’s president said the case was an isolated incident and the problem could not have originated at the restaurant. He said the restaurant switched bread vendors and “not a single crumb” from the original bakery remains.

The television station reports the restaurant’s bread vendor was Marietta-based La Petite France bakery and a Department of Agriculture inspection report listed several critical violations.

Inspectors said the facility was not clean or in good physical shape when they visited and inspectors found that food processing areas were not kept free of insects, rodents and other pests.
