: TSA is now saying
it was an airport in Sonoma not Oakland where the enchilada and knife were found.
That's not blood you see on the knife -- that's enchilada sauce.
We're not too sure what this is all about, but TSA confirmed that authorities found an 8 1/2 inch knife inside a passenger's carry on this morning at Oakland International Airport. That might not sound too unusual until you get to the part where the knife was stashed in the middle of a tray of enchiladas, says Nico Melendez, spokesman for the TSA,
Melendez says the female passenger was checking her bag at about 10 a.m. today when TSA noticed something "out of the ordinary." When they opened the bag, they found a tray of enchiladas with a knife covered in mole sauce.
TSA notified local authorities who will decide whether or not to charge the passenger. The woman was cleared for travel, Melendez says.
As for why she had the knife? "She said she made the enchiladas over the weekend and had no idea how it got in there," Melendez says.
