- Raw chicken was spotted on a baggage claim carousel in an airport.
- TSA shared video footage on its official Instagram account.
- The agency said the chicken was initially kept in a cooler during travel but somehow got loose.
The US Transportation Security Administration posted a video of raw chicken circling a baggage claim carousel.
TSA shared the clip on its official Instagram account last week, where it amassed more than 402,000 views and 1,100 comments. Footage showed a block of unwrapped, raw chicken meat circling the carousel alongside luggage and bags as flight passengers stood nearby.
“There is a personal fowl on the carousel…,” the TSA account jokingly wrote.
The agency said the meat was initially placed inside a cooler for travel but fell out at some point. It’s unclear where the raw meat flew from and how it became free.
“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,” TSA wrote in the caption.
The agency then explained that meat should be properly stored and packaged before travel. Both ice and dry ice are permitted to keep meat chilled.
TSA didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
In recent months, airports and airlines have made headlines for several mishaps.
In one instance, a video showed one woman being escorted off of a Spirit Airlines flight for lighting a cigarette and blowing smoke into an asthma-sufferer’s face. Earlier this month, a woman said on TikTok that an Alaska Airlines flight attendant shamed her for her outfit.
Another woman on TikTok claimed that American Airlines lost her two cats on a flight from Los Angeles to New York City.
