Those with peanut allergies can rest a little easier on their next Southwest flight, as the company announced Monday it will no longer be serving the traditional airplane snack.
Beginning August 1, Southwest will stop offering the complimentary packaged food on board as a cautionary measure for those who might suffer from potentially life-threatening nut allergies.

"Peanuts forever will be part of Southwest’s history and DNA," a spokesperson for the airline said in a statement to Fox News. "However, to ensure the best on-board experience for everyone, especially for customers with peanut-related allergies, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue serving peanuts on all flights.”
