A United Airlines flight traveling from Munich, Germany to Newark, NJ had to make an emergency landing at London Heathrow Airport after several passengers complained of feeling light-headed and nauseous after food was served. Paramedics came on board and took one passenger off the plane.
According to American Council on Science and Health:
One individual was taken off the plane by EMS and the rest were formally assessed, ultimately booked into hotels and rerouted to their final destinations.

Passenger Pete Teoh, who felt fine, tweeted about it:
The cause of the illnesses is still unknown (although it seems like it was some sort of food poisoning) and is being investigated.
