Frozen Food

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

Meat, seafood, vegetables and other non-liquid food items are permitted in both carry-on and checked bags. If the food is packed with ice or ice packs in a cooler or other container, the ice or ice packs must be completely frozen when brought through screening. If the ice or ice packs are partially melted and have any liquid at the bottom of the container, they will not be permitted.


 

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