Hold The Gravy! These Are The Foods Not Allowed In Carry-On Luggage

Grandma’s famous cranberry sauce may have to find a new way to fly.

The Transportation Security Administration has released a list in time for the holidays of food items that are prohibited in carry-on luggage.

The good news: Turkey is allowed, as well as fresh whole fruit, cakes and pies — though they may require additional screening, the TSA notes.

Other items that are in liquid form — including gravy, mashed potatoes, jams and jellies, salsa and maple syrup — will either have to be checked in, shipped, or adhere to the 3.4 oz. (100 ml) rule to remain in your carry-on luggage.

One good tip is that if the item can spill, be sprayed, spread, dumped, poured or pumped, it should adhere to the TSA’s liquid rules.

Check out the list below of prohibited items. If you have an item that’s not on the list and are unsure, you can contact the @AskTSA team on Twitter, Facebook messenger or by calling 866-289-9673. You can even send them a photo of the item in question.

Happy travels!
