Airplane Window
New TSA Powder Restriction in Carry-Ons

In order to reduce the risk of additional screening, the TSA is now encouraging passengers to put powder substances (such as cosmetics, talcum powder, dry spices, or protein mix) of more than 350 milliliters or about 12 ounces into checked bags.

The stricter powders requirements will go into effect on June 30 on international flights bound for the United States.

This new security measure seeks to identify substances such as fentanyl, pepper spray and improvised explosive devices.

You can review a comprehensive list of banned and approved items on the TSA’s What Can I Bring? page: https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring/all.
