It IS a lot harder to sneak poison into whole cashews than ones already broken to pieces.

The article should go on to say that most of the other passengers felt similarly that they were being poisoned by United 's TPAC food offering in Y, he was just the only one to demonstrate his displeasure so vehemently. After nodding wistfully, the other passengers decided to subdue him.

Food poisoning on UA is a given. For me, that's not even news. The stuff they serve barely, barely even qualifies as food anymore and I can't count the number of times I've been sickened from it. Seriously.

Anyone else notice the picture used for this article? That A319 looks like it has some major problems!

I think that incident took place several years ago, if I'm not mistaken.

Maybe you're allergic to something they put in many of the dishes?

Or maybe he's finding another way to dig at UA, when clearly this has nothing to do with the food service?

A/C is on the ground. I would speculate that the pax would be quarantined until it is determined that there is no threat, but we'll see what happens.

Yes, I am: chemicals, highly processed compounds, and genetically mutated organisms. When "food" is "cheap" - there's a good reason why.
