Pieces of raw chicken found in baggage claim trigger TSA message


A strange sighting during an airport baggage claim prompted the US Transportation Security Administration to remind passengers how to properly wrap meat when traveling.

TSA recently released a video of raw, unconfined chunks of chicken circulating with other suitcases on a baggage carousel.

The TSA did not specify when and at which airport the video was recorded. Officials also did not explain how the meat ended up outside a container. FOX TV stations have contacted administration for comment.

But officials are reminding people how to properly wrap meat in flight.

“In order to avoid ruffling the feathers, the meat must be properly wrapped,” the agency said. “Ice or dry ice is allowed to keep the herd cool. “

According to TSA website, meat is permitted in carry-on and checked baggage. If food is packaged with ice or ice packs in a cooler or other containers, the ice or ice packs should be completely frozen when filtering. If the ice or ice packs are partially melted and there is liquid at the bottom of the container, they will not be allowed.
