Table 1 Recommendations arising from this study

From: The strategies that peanut and nut-allergic consumers employ to remain safe when travelling abroad

1. International policy needs to be developed to provide allergy information in catering services provided by transport e.g. planes and trains. This policy should cover the use of the 14 main allergens as ingredients and cross contamination.
2. Policy should be developed on how to manage the increased risk of food allergic individuals when eating in confined spaces e.g. airline cabin.
3. International regulations should address the training of all staff responsible for preparing and serving food in transport services, restaurants and other food outlets.
4. Further research is required to quantify the true risk of airborne allergens in aircraft cabins.
