Apparently it’s a security risk
Charmed and Mistresses actress Alyssa Milano lambasted officials at London’s Heathrow Airport on Tuesday, reports ABC, after 10 oz. of her own pre-expressed breast milk were taken from her as she passed through security.
“Every ounce of milk I’m able to produce for my child is nothing short of a miracle and to watch that milk be thrown away without any regard for my baby, was heartbreaking,” said Milano.
According to Heathrow’s screening protocol, passengers traveling with a baby or infant are supposed to be allowed to “carry a reasonable amount” of breast milk through security.
Milano conceded that security staff were “following orders to keep us all safe.” But the actress said she hopes the policy undergoes a “thoughtful consideration.”
