TSA lifting liquid, gel ban in ‘09

The Transportation Security Administration intends to remove airline carry-on restrictions on liquids, aerosols and gels - including toothpaste and other personal care products - by fall 2009, the agency says Oct. 24. In 2010, TSA expects Advanced Technology X-Ray systems, which can differentiate between threat and non-threat liquids, to be widespread enough to negate the need for restrictions. Passengers currently may carry on liquids in 3 oz. bottles inside a clear plastic bag, though TSA began allowing up to 4 oz. of nonprescription liquid medication and certain amounts of infant formula in August 2006 (1"The Tan Sheet" Aug. 21, 2006, In Brief)

Tylenol GoTabs

McNeil Consumer Healthcare announces the launch of Extra Strength Tylenol GoTabs, the first-ever adult chewable Tylenol tablets Oct 3.

The six-count blister packs are small enough to "slip easily into a jacket pocket, briefcase or purse," the release adds. TSA announced in August it loosened up restrictions on liquids, allowing four ounces of non-prescription liquid medications on board (1"The Tan Sheet" Aug. 21, 2006, In Brief)...
