Canned Foods

Carry On Bags: 
Yes (Special Instructions)
Checked Bags: 
Yes

There are some items that are not on the prohibited items list, but because of how they appear on the X-ray, security concerns, or impact of the 3-1-1 rules for liquids, gels and aerosols, they could require additional screening that might result in the item not being allowed through the checkpoint. We suggest that you pack this item in your checked bag, ship it to your destination or leave it at home.


 

The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.
