    Because, of course terrorists will mark their biohazard bags as biohazard?

    Seriously, TSA couldn't find a banana with a family of monkeys.

    I don't understand. Somebody got into their bags without their knowledge and planted this?

    Edited to Add: Oh, forget it. Now I see. "Care facility" must mean nursing care, assisted living, that kind of thing.

    Lisa, I read it as the couple lives in a care facility, and one of the workers there packed some laundry detergent for them. Having worked at such a facility in high school I can attest that such things might be packed in a biohazard bag because often the sheets and towels heading to the laundry room have bodily fluids on them.

    After all, no one believes this stuff is happening, so why would a housekeeper think twice about using the closest bag to her/him that just so happened to say biohazard?

    Given that TSA is the subject I'm surprised it wasn't spelled "analized", which has to do with screening technique instead of baggage search methods.
