Among the list of things the Transportation Security Administration doesn’t often find in checked bags is surely giant lobsters – even at Boston’s Logan International Airport.
But according to the TSA, that’s exactly what an agent found while screening checked luggage over the weekend.
In a tweet, TSA spokesman Michael McCarthy said the lobster topped 20 pounds.
According to the TSA, live lobsters are allowed on planes – at least in checked baggage.
Travelers can take lobsters with them if they’re in clear, plastic, spill-proof containers.
