Holiday Schlepping: Items Prohibited By TSA On Flights PDF Print E-mail

Of course, you’ll need a present for grandma for inviting you to fly to her Florida condo for Thanksgiving or Christmas. However, before buying that ham or turkey to go with you, know the rules.

The following are prohibited from going aboard with air passengers: Alcoholic beverages in excess of five liters per person, canned food, olive oil, yogurt, fresh fruit/vegetables, fresh meat/seafood, peanut butter, jelly and creamy cheese.  

Some allowed include hard cheese, chocolate and spices in original packaging or vacuum-sealed. Leak-proof wrapped cakes and sandwiches are OK. If what you’d like to take aboard with you may be banned, just don’t buy it.
