TSA asking airline passengers to double-check bags

With Thanksgiving travel around the corner, the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is asking airline passengers to double-check what is allowed to be packed in luggage

NEWARK - With Thanksgiving travel around the corner, the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) is asking airline passengers to double-check what is allowed to be packed in luggage or carry-ons.

Ten years after its creation, the TSA says it has recovered a number of items, including a whip, nunchucks, bullets, guns, handcuffs, brass knuckles and bear claws.

The TSA collects 8 tons worth of prohibited items each year at Newark Liberty International Airport. The TSA says inexperienced flyers are the most likely to bring banned items.
