TSA Says Peanut Butter Is A Liquid; Bans Large Jars From Flights: 

Yes, those headlines are correct!  According to CNN, the Transportation Security Administration has confirmed it considers peanut butter a liquid which means you aren’t allowed to bring large containers of it onto planes.  The TSA recently busted a person trying to get a jar of it on a flight. They confiscated it and then tweeted; “You may not be nuts about it, but the TSA considers your PB a liquid. In carry-on, it needs to be 3.4oz or less.”

I honestly had no idea that peanut butter was considered a liquid.  I like to travel with peanut butter because if I get hungry, I can throw it on some crackers or a slice of bread.  It is packed with protein and is so easy to carry along on a long trip.

When traveling on public transportation I would think the reason peanut butter would be banned  is the fact that peanuts are one of the most common allergies. There are those people who are so allergic to peanuts that these people have experienced anaphylaxis just by the smell!

The Transportation Security Administration has taken to Twitter to explain:
