I take it often. But then again, I drink it at home as well. I love tomato juice. Especially with black pepper and lemon/lime.

is it permitted to take lemon/lime slices on a plane, form a kshrus perspective?

It's the altitude. And tomato juice is not the only thing that's better up there.


Tha's a myth. The lack of space and need for some discretion makes things worse, not better.

Of course, you could be referring to the pretzels.

Thought about this over the weekend. IIRC, I once asked and was told it's ok. But it's a very vague memory.

Why not?

Why should we be able to assume that? And certainly not that it was cleaned with soap and hot water, which would cause the soap to make even the b'li'os lifgam. And Ben yomo wouldn't even help with a lemon because it's likely a davar charif.

The reason I think it's okay to squeeze that lemon into your juice (but possibly not to put it in your mouth directly, although I have to think about that, too) is because it's almost certainly batel b'shishim (ein mevatlin issue lechatchila to e discussed at a later date). Wait, you ask! The lemon is a milsa d'avida l'taama, so how can it be batel? The answer is that only something which is inherently assur is not batel when it is intended to change the taste; something which is muttar on its own, but has absorbed some issur, does not have this restriction.

i get ginger ale.

also, lemon slices usually have fecal matter on them http://today.msnbc.m...n/#.Tze7kuQmSuI

A total of 25 different types of germs were found on 53 out of the 76 lemons that were sampled. Some were fecal in origin (either from dirty fingertips of the restaurant employees, or from meat-contaminated cutting boards and knives)
