TSA Say They Have NOT Banned Star Wars Themed Soda Bottles

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge and Disney Fans were shocked to read in the Media that the Themed Soda bottles that look like Grenades were banned by TSA from being brought on to an Aircraft.

It turns out that the Ban story originated from a tweet by AskTSA where they were asked if the soda bottles would be allowed on Aircraft to which the responder from AskTSA replied intimating that they wouldn't be allowed.

TSA have now put out a statement saying they are not banned and that they have instructed their officers to treat the Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Soda bottles as "oversized liquid"

The full statement is HERE

The issue concerning Star Wars Galaxys Edge-themed soda bottles has recently been brought to our attention by the general public, as these items could reasonably be seen by some as replica hand grenades. We appreciate the concerns being raised, because replica explosives are not permitted in either carry-on or checked bags.

We have completed our review, and instructed our officers to treat these as an oversized liquid. Because these bottles contain liquids larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters), they should be put in checked baggage or emptied to be brought on as carry-on item. TSA officers will maintain the discretion to prohibit any item through the screening checkpoint if they believe it poses a security threat.

I would not believe what the TSA say 100%. As per the official statement, it's still at the officers discretion. Many of us have seen TSA officers on a power-trip as they know the nanosecond you say anything, you're either to the back of the queue or not flying.

In MCO I've seen passengers removed from the zig-zag queue after the passport / boarding pass check for muttering expletives about how slow the line was moving. Think they were just taken right to the back of the line as punishment for their words.

Great to have a clarified and defining decision on this , that at least shows some common sense.
I know of people who have already brought these home, as they had passholder viewing of Galaxys's Edge. Seemed so ridiculous you could not bring home a momento that looks so similar to Christmas baubles!
