Part of a new food item at the Minnesota State Fair has been pulled due to concerns of sustainability. 

According to the fair, concerns were raised about the Wingwalker Donut Flight after it was announced fair attendees would be provided with three plastic syringes to fill the donuts with Bavarian cream, chocolate custard and Minnesota lingonberry jam.

'We understand the impact food packaging has on the environment, and the Hangar (vendor), along with the fair has decided that plastic syringes will not be used as part of the Wingwalker Donut Flight,' the fair said in a statement. 

Those looking to get their donut fix will still be able to get a donut flight but will receive a compostable tray with compartments that can be used for dunking the donuts in the selected fillings.
