People were shocked and disgusted when a pile of raw chicken came out on the luggage carousel track in the midst of their luggage.
Passengers Disgusted As Raw Meat Comes Out At Baggage Claim
When waiting for your luggage, a pile of raw meat would definitely be the last thing on your mind and definitely the last thing you’d expect to see in between bags.
This however was exactly what happened for passengers waiting at the baggage claim carousel at the Seattle, Washington airport after disembarking from their flight.
A video shows a greasy pile of raw chicken merrily bumping away on the moving carousel. The meat seems to be congealed together in the shape of a box which it seemingly must have been in before shedding its limitations.
The TSA shared the video of the disgusting meaty monster as passengers look on with a mix of curiosity and disgust.
It was however good to see the TSA take a humorous approach to the situation. "There is a personal fowl on the carousel," read the caption.
“Can chickens fly? Well… assuredly no poultry is flying like this. We hear at one time these wings and thighs were cooped up in a cooler.”
"Somewhere between baggage and the carousel, they became free range."
TSA continued to provide details on how to pack perishable items in the same humorous manner. "Don’t wing your travel packing. In order to keep from ruffling any feathers, meat should be properly packaged. Ice or dry ice is permitted to keep the flock chilled."
"They’ll take your raw travel questions and cook out an egg-cellent answer. #RawStory#CubedFowl#ChickensCanFly#ChillFlock#AskTSA."
While the TSA managed to see the funny side of things, people that had their luggage surrounded by the threat of salmonella didn’t find the situation as funny.
"Imagine pulling that off the carousel as the owner," said one woman.
Another user said, “I see salmonella everywhere. I feel bad for maintenance/cleaning people. People really NEED to check poultry or anything perishable on their trips?"
Another user said, “Enough to convert me to veganism…"
In a more official message, the TSA said, "Our understanding is that it fell out of a cooler behind the block of chicken (and you can see the chicken is still in cooler shape).”
"Our guess is that the owner did not think about the lid coming open and did not tape it securely enough."
