The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has adopted stricter carry-on security screenings. Travelers are now required to remove all electronics larger than mobile phones, including tablets, e-readers and handheld game consoles from carry-on baggage for screening. In addition, travelers may be requested to remove any food, powders and other loose items from their carry-on to allow screening officers to obtain a clear X-ray image for security purposes.
The TSA recommends travelers “organize their carry-on bags and keep them uncluttered to ease the screening process” as “it is possible that passengers may experience more bag checks and additional screening of some items.”
