Food items that can go through a checkpoint
HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WENY)-- The holidays are about making fond memories with family and friends. However, if you are flying with family, you might be thinking of bringing some home-cooked items with you.
'' If you can spill it, spray it, pump it spread it, or pour it, please put it in a checked bag,'' said Lisa Farbstein -the Spokesperson for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
These are your liquids and they are not allowed in your carry-on. On the other hand, they can be put in your checked bags. Therefore, food items like cranberry sauce, gravy, and wine are not allowed in your carry-ons. Canned fruits and vegetables are not allowed in a carry-on since they contain liquid within them.
'' If you are traveling with food items that need to be cooled with ice packs like meat, the ice packs must be solid frozen. If melted, it will be considered a liquid. You can use frozen corn as substitutes for ice packs as it remains solid when it thaws. '' said Lisa Farbstein.
Food items often need additional security, so it is best to place these items in an easily accessible place. To find out more information about what items are allowed in a carry-on, you download the TSA app and use their '' What can I bring '' feature.
