TSA reminds people to leave ulus in checked baggage

FAIRBANKS- While vacationing in Alaska, visitors love to collect souvenirs of their experience, but one popular item is getting stuck at airport security. Some passengers forget that the ulu is a knife so the Transportation Security Administration created signs for Alaska to remind travelers.

A representative with TSA, Lorie Dankers says, “passengers will bring five or six in their bag and have to leave them behind. And we're disappointed when that's the case, so the more we can get the word out to make sure those are in checked baggage, the happier everyone is.”
To help with packing questions, they also created an app called myTSA. You can find the app at: tsa.gov/mobile
