Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

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

Solid food items (not liquids or gels) can be transported in either your carry-on or checked bags within the continental United States. Liquid or gel food items larger than 3.4 oz are not allowed in carry-on bags and should be placed in your checked bags if possible.

Passengers flying from Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands to the U.S. mainland cannot take most fresh fruits and vegetables due to the risk of spreading invasive plant pests. Please visit the U.S. Department of Agriculture website for more information.  


 

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