Shawn Johnson says TSA agent “groped” her for carrying breast milk


Although Shawn did not reveal where the alleged incident took place, she posted an Instagram photo of herself having “the best time” at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Texas on October 11.

She also wrote that she was away from her family for less than 24 hours.

In response to the gold medal’s accusations, a TSA spokesperson provided background information to E! News of his policies as they continue to examine the matter.

“Breast milk is, of course, allowed,” a representative said in a statement on Tuesday, Oct. 12. “We support passengers traveling with breast milk and other essential nutrients for their children and that is why we provide details of our screening protocols on our website.”

According to TSA guidelines listed online, “TSA officers may need to test liquids for explosives or concealed prohibited items. Officers may ask you to open the container and / or have you transfer a small amount of liquid to a separate empty container or dispose of a small amount, if possible. “
