So you'd think that a can of tuna fish would be OK. Screener shakes can; no she says, water. No, no my wife says, tuna fish in some water. No, no says that screener and into the garbage it goes. And this was in Canada, we put it down to the screener's language skills or lack thereof.
Anything packed in water is likely supposed to count as liquid, given that baby food counts. We had an interesting discussion about a can of soup, in which the screener encouraged us to say that it was condensed soup so that it was not liquid... we got to keep it. Zero issues with language, just some unspoken communication about the rules and lack of risk that we appeared to present. It just hadn't occurred to us that it would violate the liquid rule.

Most likely that can of tuna was over the 3.5 oz limit which is why it got tossed. It has liquid in it, it's over the limit, it gets tossed.

However, you can go over that limit if you have a medical reason. I've been able to take things through that are larger than this. I have a note from my doctor stating I'm hypoglycemic plus a bunch of food allergies (so there really isn't much I can eat of airport food, so I haul my own). I can also bring larger ice packs to keep that food cold as long as the ice packs are still frozen when I go through security (anyone can do that). I make sure I tell the screeners that as I'm approaching them and offer to show them the doctor's note. Knock on wood, I've not had any problems.

OK, lesson learned, freeze my tuna fish.

TSA, etc.

I can fly for almost free now and since 1994. 3 times since then, twice I couldn't drive to due to water enroute. We can just tow our Escape to the places we prefer to visit and also no motels or hotels.

Hi: cpaharley2008... Don't think we'll be avail. to attend.
Just checked at "Dad's" Liquors and I have around two gallons of various Bourbons not counting what's opened. Guess I'm not drinking it fast enough Eh? I have taken a moonshine liking to it mixed with our local sweet Maple wine distilled from Maple Sap !!! Got a great recipe for Bourbon Fudge at Niagara Wine Escape... but alas it's not sugar free.
