Usually while you wait for your luggage to appear on the airport's carousel you're more concerned about whether it's going to be battered and broken. Not whether it's travelling alongside a block of raw meat which some passengers have been shocked to see:
The heap of fowl disgusted some passengers at a US airport who were trying to locate their cases after a flight.
The raw meat is somehow still crammed together in a box shape, leading people to believe that it had fallen from some sort of cool box.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) shared the clip of the drumsticks and chicken legs as they make their way around the conveyor belt, passing confused travellers.
Posting the clip on Instagram, 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. They'll take your raw travel questions and cook out an egg-cellent answer."
Commenting on the post, one person wrote: "Imagine pulling that off the carousel as the owner." No thanks.
Another added: "Omg I'd hate to have my bag on this conveyer belt after that."
A third said: "My brain had a very hard time processing what I was seeing."
Others asked about the rules when it comes to raw meat/fresh food being allowed to air travel.
a TSA spokesperson told Newsweek: "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."
