Title: Liquids through security
Post by: Achas Veachas on October 24, 2012, 08:17:50 AM
Prompted by Dan's TR in the main site:

The Sweet and Sour and the Lemon Chicken came with the sauce in a container on the side, but luckily the good folks at the TSA didnít notice that I dared bring liquid past them.  But good to know for the future to request the sauce to be in the meal and not on the side where it can be mistaken for something nefarious.
I heard that the TSA scanners can't detect liquids in a paper bag, I have friends who claim to have taken through bottles of Mashke. Anyone heard of this?

I guess that makes sense, they only pick up liquids and ice is a solid. Wouldn't help much for Mashke :(

Seems hard to believe, but I couldn't believe they let me through either.
It was indeed in paper.

IME they see the shape of the container and pull it out. (Not commenting on paper, rather the method they usually use, I think had more to do with the bottle shape than the contents). On another note I once had them let me through with a drink box of cappuccino! Because it was paper?

True but the theory goes that liquid can't be seen through the paper. Any expert opinion on the physics behind this?

On a somewhat related  issue (to the thread name) from the TSA--
As of January 31, 2014, passengers traveling internationally into the U.S. and connecting to another flight are allowed to have in their carry-on baggage liquids in excess of 3.4 ounces (100 mL) that were purchased as duty-free merchandise. This only applies to products purchased in duty-free stores, placed in an intact designated secure, tamper-evident bag, and successfully screened and cleared by TSA officers. Scanning may not be effective for liquids in opaque, ceramic, or metallic bottles, or other containers. Liquids that cannot be screened and cleared will not be allowed to remain in carry-on baggage. Customers may choose to place these items into checked baggage or throw them away.

There is a concept of not buying anything on Pesach as if it is by any slight chance Chametz you're oiver on an issur kareis, as opposed to having it before then it would be battul.

Not exactly. Chometz midoraisa is batel bshishim. It's a din drabanan that it is oser bmashehu, even a little bit. That din only applies on pesach. Before pesach it has the regular rules of shishim. So if it's batel before pesach, you can then eat in on pesach

A few weeks ago, I bought some nice new (kosher!) toothpaste in Crown Heights. Then when I got to EWR, the TSA guy pulled it out of my bag and said it's too big! I said I will open it right here and squeeze out the excess 2 ounces into the trash. He said I could go back outside and do that if I wanted to but then, obviously, I would have to go through security all over again.

It messes up the forums and defeats the "search" function. No experience from previous jet blue encounters will help you any more than other airlines.

There is a company in the USA called TSA and they make the rules for all domestic and international flights leaving the USA. No airline can go around that. (Some airlines like El Al have there own security in addition to TSA)

No, not offended, just annoyed.

I guess it is a big YMMV how much liquid one can get away with.

JFK - PHX, through JFK with one infant and two children, was able to bring through close to 10 bottles of water. (6 Passengers). No one said anything...

Tried it on the return. PHX - JFK, through PHX they looked at them and was like ok you have to many bottles. After negotiating what a reasonable amount to bring through was, they let us through with 5 8oz bottles.
And they missed two that never came out of the bag :)

I once saw a kid get stopped with a glass stoppered beaker full of liquid. The TSA let him go after he explained it was liquid nitro for a science fair.

No experience, but per the TSA,
Wax Candles are fine.
Olive oil is OK but only 3.4 oz or less, like other liquids

From reading thru this thread it wud seem that an ice pack frozen solid (to keep food frozen solid) wouldn't have issues. Any actual data points on ice packs tho?

My TSA - Home Airport (https://apps.tsa.dhs.gov/mytsa/cib_results.aspx?search=gel%20ice%20pack)
Frozen liquid items are allowed through the checkpoint as long as they are frozen solid when presented for screening. If frozen liquid items are partially melted, slushy, or have any liquid at the bottom of the container, they must meet 3-1-1 liquids requirements.
If the frozen item 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.

Medically necessary liquids may be accompanied by ice packs, but we ask that you declare these items to a security officer for inspection.

You can pack frozen perishables in your carry-on or checked baggage in dry ice. The FAA limits you to five pounds of dry ice that is properly packaged (the package is vented).

The 3-1-1 rule for liquids, aerosols and gels in carry-ons is as follows: containers must be 3.4 ounces or less; stored in a 1 quart/liter zip-top bag; 1 zip-top bag per person. Larger amounts of non-medicinal liquids, gels, and aerosols must be placed in checked baggage.

If the liquid is considered a hazardous material that is permitted onboard an aircraft, it is still subject to the 3-1-1 limitations. Many questions arise on whether an item is hazardous material and what requirements must be met to take it on an aircraft. The Pipeline Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA) at 1-800-467-4922 or the aircraft operator on which you are flying can assist you with your questions concerning hazardous material.

Even if an item is generally permitted, it may be subject to additional screening or not allowed through the checkpoint if it triggers an alarm during the screening process, appears to have been tampered with, or poses other security concerns. The final decision rests with TSA on whether to allow any items on the plane.

Would TSA mind if I pour liquid NyQuil (non-prescription cold medicine) into an empty container smaller than 3.4 ounces and then put that into a clear plastic bag?

Yes, but it is YMMV.  I'd bring the emptied, original Nyquil container with me to show them.  It is obviously up to their discretion since who couldn't just food color a dangerous liquid to look like Nyquil.  Right?

I've had small pocket knives pass up to three securities, then WHAM on subsequent ones!   :( >:(

In fact they can check every bottle and every liquid for you with the pads, and then approve it, they don't want to do it but if you tell them it's medicine they might do it for you.
