I'm guessing they frisked one too many blue haired ladies and got a few jabs of knitting needles to realize that "granny" was not going to blow up a plane. She just wanted to knit while waiting the 4-5 hours in the airport.

Just about any liquid can be taken on as long as it is 3 oz or less and in a ziploc baggie.

my daughter flew out on a business trip this morning. She called when she arrived to say that in her carry on she had packed a can of Campbells soup to eat later. Security took it and an unopened Jello pudding cup.
Idiots! Common sense should prevail with these security measures but it doesn't seem to be.
Perhaps the security guy was hungry

That's ridiculous. I bet somebody ate that already.

Most food items can not be taken thru security. The only exceptions are baby food, formula and other special needs for diabetics and such. Then these items CAN exceed the 3 oz limit. Food items can not so that explains the soup and pudding being taken up. I can usually take small packages of crackers w/o any problems and have.

Besides, don't you know if you mixed Campbell's soup (not the store brand ) and a Jello pudding (has to be the right flavor) it can make a potential smoke bomb

Not exactly. All containers of 3oz (or less) liquids need to fit into a single quart sized baggie.

Actually, the liquid foods (which includes aerosol cheese, jarred peanut butter) is part of the liquid rule. All 3 oz (or smaller) containers of liquid must fit into 1 quart ziploc bag. Only one bag per person, food or otherwise.

You can take hard foods from home like cookies, peanuts, crackers, beef jerky, etc. Not sure about fruit.

You can also take any food stuff you bought (after going through security) with you on the plane, as long as it doesn't exceed the airline's carryon limit.
