The Airport Authority is investigating an ‘unusual substance’ found in some soap dispensers at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

DTW and the Airport Authority released this brief statement: 

“Our Public Safety Department is investigating an unusual substance found in a few of our soap dispensers during the last week. The Airport Authority takes incidents involving health and safety very seriously. We are in the process of installing new, tamper-proof soap dispensers and are more frequently monitoring our restrooms.”

An airport worker says she thinks the Airport Authority should be more up front as to what the substance is.

"They should say exactly what it is, they should let us know, we need to know it's important,” said Theresa Sleiman.
