TSA Reverse Ban on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Spherical Coke Bottles

Were you ever in any doubt that the TSA’s knee jerk decision to ban the spherical looking ‘thermal detonator’ like Coke bottles available at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge would be reversed? Thankfully, the ‘ban’ has been lifted.

It’s OK to fly home with the Coca-Cola cans shaped like thermal detonators sold at Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge, TSA said Friday.

People who want to take them home as souvenirs should put them in checked baggage or empty the cans and stick them in a carry-on item, the TSA said.

The Transportation Security Administration, which handles security at airports, had been reviewing its policy after online posts saying the cans were banned went viral.

On Friday, TSA issued a new statement, saying, “We have completed our review, and instructed our officers to treat these as an oversized liquid.”

The update comes as Disney opened Galaxy’s Edge, a $1 billion land dedicated to the “Star Wars” universe Thursday at Hollywood Studios.

Good news for fans of the new Coke bottles!
