(Scroll down for video) A sandwich seller inside the Atlanta Airport is under scrutiny after a man found insects inside his sandwich.

Officials of the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport said that they are improving the way they inspect restaurants inside the airport after a man’s sandwich from an airport vendor was full of bugs.

The passenger, bought the sandwich at an airport restaurant on Wednesday morning. Once he removed the cover, he was surprised to find bugs in it.

Joel Woloshuk said he pulled out his phone and recorded the video of the insects crawling on his sandwich after boarding a flight to Miami, Florida on Wednesday morning.

The video shows the worms crawling in and on the food he bought at Cafe Intermezzo inside Terminal B at Hartsfield-Jackson airport.

“What I thought was Parmesan began to move,” Woloshuk said.
Woloshuk kept the sandwich until he returned to Atlanta on Wednesday night.
He said he called the restaurant and asked to meet with a manager, but no one was available.

Cafe Intermezzo said they really regret the isolated incident.
In a statement, the cafe said the problem “could not have been generated in our facilities.”
He said the problem started with the bread provider with which it has since cut ties.

“We removed all their Items. Neither a crumb or a slice of bread from that supplier remains in the facility,” the statement said.
Woloshuk said one restaurant manager offered him a refund, which he refused. He said he just wants to be sure this will not happen to anyone else.
