Jenna Elfman's Breast Milk Tested by Airport Security

TSA Tests Jenna Elfman's Breast Milk: OK or Asinine?

No substance (even a mom's milk) gets waved through airport security these days. Actress Jenna Elfman was traveling with her 4-month-old son, Easton, yesterday when she had to hand over the babe's food. JennaOnPurpose tweeted:

Going thru security at airport & TSA really felt the need to "vapor test" the bottle of breast milk. I mean, is there no common sense left?

As a mom do you think this incident can be chalked up to security regulations or do you think it's ridiculous?

"Who wouldn't believe a mom and baby?" What, just because a kid slithered out of your cooch you get special treatment? Not the way it works in the real world.

Honestly, it's their job. I have no problem with it.

Simply having a baby doesn't mean that the person with them is good! We have to treat everyone the same otherwise people just take advantage.

TSA agents aren't given discretion as to who they think is dangerous and who they think is safe -- and it's better that way. I'd rather there be a strict set of rules that apply to everyone than giving TSA agents the ability to decide what to test/ inspect and what to let through.

With women in the Middle East blowing themselves up and sending their kids out with bombs I guess you can never be too safe. When we travelled with infant formula we never had to open it or taste it but than I hear the security is pretty lax at Newark airport.
