Yes, Peanut Butter Is Considered A Liquid According To The TSA
Up until a few weeks ago, it had been many years since I have flown anywhere. I had to do some checking with the TSA website to make sure I would be prepared for my flight, and to what the requirements and limitations are these days.
Moving through the Binghamton Airport TSA was simple and easy. I knew what to expect, except I did forget to take the mobile phone out of my pocket. Oops. Easily taken care of.
On the way back through the Orlando Florida airport, I forgot that I had my airline ticket in one pocket and a handkerchief in the other. Well, that wasn't acceptable. So I had to throw them into the bin as well. Otherwise, no issues.
I made sure any liquids I had were in a proper container no larger than the 3.4-ounce limit. But here's one I never heard of, even though it's not a new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) rule. Apparently peanut butter is considered a liquid, and as such, if you plan on bringing on board, creamy or crunchy peanut butter in your carry-on bag, it had better be in a 3/4 ounce or less approved container according to the TSA.
This came to light recently via a Twitter post recently from a passenger who found out that his jar of peanut butter was not allowed in his carry-on due to the fact that it was over the 3.4-ounce size limit and is considered a liquid according to ABC 7 New York. The TSA is considered a liquid anything that has no definite shape and takes a shape dictated by its container.
