If you are flying during 2020 with food, here are the latest transportation security administration changes for how your food is screened. These security changes apply to any snack or solid food in your carry-on suitcase or personal item bag. Because of the transmissibility of Covid-19 the TSA does not want their frontline officers to touch or have contact with your food. If you do not follow the new rules for packing food, you may be asked to leave the security line, repack it correctly and then get in the back of the line to be screened again. For months now food has obstructed clear images with airport security x-ray screening, requiring an officer to pull you from the line so he/she can personally inspect your snack. This x-ray screening procedure takes time, it takes personnel and there is the chance of transmitting germs to you as well as to the officer. So the TSA unrolled this x-ray screening change to start the middle of June 2020.
Based on my video with the other changes by TSA, some of you wondered what snacks are allowed. how to pack them. These airplane snacks can be packaged or food from your home in a plastic bag. Apples, grapes, fish crackers, a chicken salad sandwich, and chips all count as food. You are allowed to have a plastic bag of goldfish crackers. #tsarule #howtopackfood #traveltip
