Does Eating Airline Food Pose Health Risks?

These days, if you want to eat food served by an airline on-board its aircraft, you will more than likely pay a fee for that meal or snack.

However, what if the food may not be completely safe to eat? According to an article in USA Today, an FDA report reveals airline food could pose health threat, as airline food is allegedly prepared in unsanitary and unsafe conditions that could lead to illness. The unsanitary conditions include but are not limited to:

  • Food stored at improper temperatures at many facilities
  • Use of unclean equipment
  • Workers who practice poor hygiene
  • Pest and vermin such as cockroaches, flies and mice as signs of inadequate pest control

How willing are you now to pay a fee to eat that airline food?
