A warning has been issued by the TSA (Transport Security Administration) after a disgusting pile of raw meat as spotted riding on an airplane luggage carousel.
The organisation has reminded jetsetters of the importance of packing raw meat products properly to avoid vile incidents like this from happening in the future.
A TSA spokesperson said that all raw meat products need to be held in a sealed container with ice or dry ice.
The spotted pile of raw chicken, in Seattle, Washington, was mushed together in a cube shape, which implies that it had been in a container at one point but had slipped out onto the carousel.
“There is a personal fowl on the carousel,” the TSA wrote.
“Can chickens fly? Well… assuredly no poultry is flying like this. We hear at one time these wings and thighs were cooped up in a cooler. Somewhere between baggage and the carousel, they became free-range.”
The post continues: “Don’t wing your travel packing. In order to keep from ruffling any feathers meat should be properly packaged. Ice or dry ice is permitted to keep the flock chilled. If you are pecking around the internet for travel tidbits, nest time reach out to our hens and roosters at #AskTSA.
“They’ll take your raw travel questions and cook out an egg-cellent answer.”
Speaking to Newsweek, the TSA said: “Our understanding is that it fell out of a cooler behind the block of chicken (and you can see the chicken is still in cooler shape). Our guess is that the owner did not think about the lid coming open and did not tape it securely enough.”
In other news, an EasyJet flight was ordered to return to London Gatwick airport after passengers staged mutiny to stop armed police trying to evict two men off a flight.
An altercation erupted between the cabin crew and passengers on board while the plane was taxiing and about to take off at London Gatwick airport on Friday.
The two plane passengers, who were seated in an emergency exit row, reportedly “huffed” when they were told to put on their shoes for take-off.
EasyJet explained that it is a safety requirement to make sure there are no loose items during take-off.
