A Michigan woman has been fined more than $2,000 for attempting to take a jar of apple butter onto an airplane. Mary Hostein says a Transportation Security Administration screener blocked her from boarding a plane after the jar was discovered in her carry-on luggage. She tried to go through another line and was stopped again and forced to leave the jar behind.
