TSA now checking passenger drinks bought after passing through security

Passengers say their problem is not with the rules at the airport. They understand why drinks are not allowed through security, but when they buy one while they wait for their flight, they say the TSA shouldn’t ask to test it.

Passengers say traveling is a big enough stress, but now some are worried the drinks they are getting are not safe.

The TSA wouldn’t say what they’re testing for or why they are doing it, but travelers say they have a right to know.

“I’m always glad that my safety is a priority, I just think testing drinks after they’ve already been bought might be a little extreme,” infrequent flyer Jennifer Smart said.

“The water or or the juices or anything you buy here in the airport, TSA is going to come over and look and check and test it? That’s just ridiculous,” world traveler Thomas Burgard said.
