TSA Update: Sunscreen In Carry On Still Limited To 3.4 Ounces

by SharonKurheg

You may have read in a few places that the TSA had recently updated their rules to say that full-sized sunscreen containers (read: larger than 3.4 ounces) were now allowed in carry-on bags because they fell under the category of being “medically necessary” (read: the helped prevent skin cancer).  So effective April 7th, if you wanted to bring a full-sized bottle on suntan lotion with you on the plane, you just had to, “…declare them to security officers at the checkpoint for inspection,” according to the administration.

Dermatologists were probably jumping for joy at this update. But unfortunately, that information turned out to be a mistake. From TSA’s Twitter:

Oh. Never mind.

Just hope that none of y’all bought one of those mega-size bottles of Coppertone at Costco…
