Is that fine to bring peanut butter (PB) on an airplane? I would like to know the ways that bringing PB on a plane might or might not pose a threat to others? What should you do if you are bringing PB and if you have an allergy and want to keep safe in case someone else brings some on the plane? Thanks.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
You have asked an interesting question. Peanut allergy is one of the most severe food allergies. It can cause itchiness, urticaria, swelling, eczema, sneezing, asthma, abdominal pain, drop in blood pressure and cardiac arrest.
It may even result in anaphylactic death if not controlled at the right time.
The routes of exposure of the allergen are mostly the accidental ingestion of peanuts or PB by the concerned person (who is hypersensitive to peanuts).
Air-borne particles in a farm or factory or crushing environment may cause respiratory symptoms in allergic individuals. However, the odor of peanut butter or its mere proximity has not produced any allergic symptoms in various studies conducted.
Hence answering your questions.
