    Default Can Kraft Easy Cheese Be Packed In Checked Baggage?


    My nephew is going on an exchange program in Taiwan and they want him
    to bring
    some uniquely American food. See's candy is one item, but my nephew
    wants to take some of those spray cans of cheese. I can't figure out
    if
    it's acceptable under TSA rules for checked luggage. It's non-
    flammable,
    but the TSA has aerosol's listed under "flammable items." Do they
    mean
    that flammable aerosols are prohibited, or did they just put it under
    "flammable items" without thinking of pressurized food.

    Technically EasyCheese is not an aerosol can, there is a piston
    inside
    the can, and it's pressurized with nitrogen from the bottom (an
    aerosol
    product has the propellant mixed with the contents), but I don't
    think
    explaining that would be too productive. Any help would be
    appreciated!

    Maybe just stick with Cheeze-n-crackers, jello, and Krispy Kremes.

    Sorry- that would not be up to the TSA- call the airline.

    Yup! They'd know. BTW, cheese crackers as a sub wont work. They have that
    there too.

    Uniquely American to :them:. Kraft Mac and Cheese boxes, hamburger helper,
    New England clam chowder (get Snows if possible), pork rind 'chips' served
    with tobasco or *yellow* mustard. Bread and butter pickles (specifically
    that type), Longhorn cheese (not too much, they are apt to be somewhat
    lactose intolerant), peanut butter. Obviously not all of those but thats
    some ideas they will find intriguing. Not haute cuisine, but very american
    <grin>.

    The canned cheese if you can get it through the airport will be a unique hit
    I bet!

    Been to Thailand many times. He'll love it!

    If the airline forbids anything he wants to take along, have him ship
    the carton earlier, so it's there on its own. No airline hassle.

    Funny! We had a relative visit from Italy- he wanted donuts, jello and
    pancake mix to take home with him. When I came from there, I brought
    back tartaric acid, olive oil, wine, & chocolate!

    You can take EasyCheese in checked luggage, but not in a carry on
    (weighs over 3 oz). I have taken it a couple of times on diving trips.

    Tell him to bring a block of Velveeta. If the Taiwanese don't decide
    it's a toxic material, the airlines won't mind. It may taste a little
    nasty but it isn't normally explosive.

    They will confiscate it....same consistancy of plastic explosives.
    Ship that kind of "novelity" via FedEx air freight.

    It'd be much better if you checked with the proper governmental agencies
    instead of relying on word-of-mouth from folks on RFC or any other
    newsgroup! What you ask is akin to getting legal advice by people who
    are not attorneys! If I were in the same boat, I'd contact the local
    librarian to ask which governmental agencies to inquire. Just my
    $0.02-worth.

    Exactly. The airline will know what they'll accept and what they won't.
    They may well still search the checked baggage when it goes through x-ray if
    they can't identify what something is, but I doubt seriously they'd
    confiscate canned cheese. OTOH, customs at the other end might seize it.

    LOL you could be right. He could bring Reese's peanut butter cups but
    then that's the same texture problem isn't it

    Take a brick of Velveeta instead.

    But I can certainly see the Taiwaneese loving the novelty of
    spray-cheese. They'd eat that **** up just on principle if not
    taste.

    Jeez, Steve, this was a pretty obvious troll and y'all are taking it
    somewhat "seriously"...

    I kyped the original message from rec.travel.air, check out the
    discussion thread there...

    Myself, I'd stick with the See's candy...
