The national airline of Sri Lanka has removed the cashew nuts from the in-flight menu after the country’s president destroyed, the quality of the nuts after a recent flight.

President Maithripala Sirisena had reportedly flown on a Sri Lankan Airlines flight from Kathmandu in Nepal to the Sri Lankan city of Colombo last week, says the BBC. Then, on Monday, in a farmers ‘ association event, Sirisena openly complained about the quality of the snacks he was served in the business class.

“When I came back from Nepal, they had some cashew nuts on the plane [that], let alone people, even dogs can’t eat,” Sirisena allegedly said, according to the BBC. “Who approves these things?”

The Sri Lankan president has not indicated what, in particular, he found so offensive about the notes. But days later, on Wednesday, a representative for Sri Lankan Airlines confirmed that the offending nuts were removed, while the airline changes its supplier, the South China Morning Post reported.
