A United Airlines flight arriving at Newark International Airport in New Jersey, had to be taken out of service after ants spilled out of a carry-on bag and into the cabin, according to CBS Philadelphia.

One passenger on the flight, from Venice to Newark, described the situation by saying: “The guy in front pulls down his case (which btw isn’t zipped shut, as middle aisle guy notes to me in an aside) and ants ants ants spill out, running in every which direction.”

The passenger had documented her discovery of the ants on the plane on her Twitter account.

A spokesperson for United said that the plane was sidelined to be cleaned and exterminated. The spokesperson also said that the airline notified “airport customs and agriculture personnel”. 

The spokesperson didn’t comment on whether or not the airline charged the ants additional baggage fees.
