Are you flying to family or friends for the Thanksgiving holiday?  If you are there is a good chance you will be showing up with food that you prepared in your kitchen. The TSA is advising people traveling with Thanksgiving food dishes to pack them in their checked baggage. Cranberry sauce, creamy dips, spreads, gift baskets that contain liquid, mustard, salsa, jams and salad dressings should all be packed.

The TSA tells ABC, “Anything that presents a potential threat is looked at as a prohibited item. Items that have high concentrations of liquids fit that category. We have to err on the side of caution. The rule of thumb should be, if it’s questionable, you should ship them or bake or buy them on the opposite end of your trip. When the turkey goes through the x-ray machine, if there were an explosive in the cavity, we would see it. TSA workers are not permitted to eat perishable items left behind. Any food items are disposed of, just like bottles of water.”
