Nutella is a prohibited item at airports, according to the TSA. But what about Tide?

Did you know Nutella is verboten in the secure area of Los Angeles International Airport?

This is what I learned on Monday, as you can see from the picture above. I took it at the security entrance to the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX.

But there’s also Tide laundry powder in the picture. Some folks on Twitter told me they thought the Tide — since it’s a solid — was erroneously included.

According to TSA spokesman Nico Melendez, they were right.

My work here is done.
