British Airways has been slow rolling premium cabin service improvements. They’re moving Heathrow outbound catering to Do & Co in 2020, but I believe they’ve already been catering the New York JFK and Chicago flights.
Dr. Michael Brown shared his Club World menu. He traveled Mumbai – London Heathrow – Chicago O’Hare and on the Chicago-bound segment one of his choices was Home Counties venison stew with “rosemary dumplings, roasted chestnuts, wilted kale.”
Even though their caterer has taken ‘the greatest care’ in preparing the dish, the menu warns “there is a very small risk of bullet fragments that could be found in the meal.”
You've got to be kidding me. From the British Airways in-flight menu from London to Chicago. pic.twitter.com/lfecoXAllk

These are mistakes though, not conscious catering decisions! It may just be a British Airways attempt at offering local and seasonal items unique to the Chicago market.
Of course the meal has to be killed (PETA loves this) but I don’t recall ever seeing this disclosure in an airline menu before. Maybe I’ve just missed it?
