A huge pile of unpackaged raw chicken ended up on an airport luggage carousel – inches away from passengers’ luggage.
The video, posted by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), shows a cube of raw chicken thighs and wings stuck together and making its way across the conveyer belt. It appears as though the unclaimed meat had slipped out of its original package during the journey to Seattle.
In a series of puns, the TSA wrote, “There is a personal fowl on the carousel.”
“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.”
“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.
Users flocked to the video with concerned comments. One said, “Looks like all the other luggage on that carousel has been cross-contaminated”, while another highlighted, “I’d hate to have my bag on this conveyor belt after this.”
“Imagine pulling that off the carousel as the owner”, one commented.
