TSA Spills Formula in Suitcase

Martha Suitcase

Our kids flew in to visit us. When Martha opened her suitcase there was baby formula everywhere. There was a form that the TSA puts into bags that it has inspected. I have no problem with inspections but this was just plain unacceptable. They had spilled the formula all over in the suitcase. It seemed like it was done on purpose. The formula not only made a sticky mess all over everything but it is very expensive. This was a lot of money for this young couple to lose. I think they should have compensated them or at the very least apologized.
