Alyssa Milano's Breast Milk Confiscated at Heathrow Airport

Alyssa Milano Slams Heathrow Airport For Confiscating Her Breast Milk

Attention, Heathrow Airport: don't mess with a mom's hard-earned breast milk.

That's the message Alyssa Milano sent in a series of angry tweets after security at the London airport took away — and tossed — her breast milk.

Not OK, indeed. They don't call it liquid gold for nothing. But according to Heathrow, which engaged in a Twitter conversation with the star, "without a baby present, the government requires all liquids in carry-ons to follow the 100 ml rule."

The mom to 4-year-old Milo and 7-month-old Elizabella added: "I would have happily spread milk in different containers, which I travel with, to comply to those liquid rules. Instead, milk was taken away with no discussion. Shampoo, lotions . . . were simply tested and handed back with no issue. Makes no sense at all."

What's more, Alyssa also pointed out how nonsensical the regulations are to begin with when she ended up bringing the contraband on board anyway:

Still, the most frustrating part might just be that hours before the incident, she tweeted about the complexities in pumping that precious breast milk on a plane.
