Are Peanuts on Flights Protected by Law?

The answer appears to be yes…and packets of peanuts are in no danger of disappearing completely from airplanes anytime soon.

From CNN:

Last year, the Department of Transportation asked the public about a possible peanut ban on planes and other measures it said it was considering to address severe allergies among fliers.

“The Department is prohibited by law from restricting the serving of peanuts aboard aircraft unless a peer-reviewed study determines that serving of peanuts causes severe reactions among airline passengers. There has been no such peer-reviewed study, so we declined to take action at this time,” it said in a statement.
