Heathrow Airport Dumped Alyssa Milano's Breast Milk, May Have Lost Pump

Heathrow Airport and Alyssa Milano are in the middle of a social media spat at the moment over confiscated and subsequently discarded breast milk.

The breast milk, if you are bad at reading between the lines, belonged to the famed actress.

It all starts with Milano, a 42-year-old actress who has starred in such works as the series "Charmed," taking off on a romantic getaway sans kids with her husband.

Social media updates on the trip quickly turned to quips and news that breast milk needed for her child had been taken by airport security.

Here is how it all played out on Twitter:

At this point Heathrow Airport began answering some of the concerns:

That link leads to the policy not an explanation thereof: “If you are travelling with a baby or infant you can carry a reasonable amount outside of your liquid bag for your journey. To assist security screening, please do not carry these items in a flask. If you are not travelling with a baby / infant, all your liquids must comply with the 100ml rule. Spare supplies should be packed in hold baggage.”

The exchange continues:

Milano explained what many moms may already know:

Milano did state that the breast milk, instead of being discarded, could have been measured over various containers.

The entirety of that tweet is as follows: “PPS. I travel w/ a portable Medela breast pump on the plane. Hoping this is just a weird coincidence but my other breast pump that I checked w/ the rest of my baggage... is lost. Everything arrived at my final destination except my hospital grade breast pump. Filling out a lost baggage claim now.”

To officials at Heathrow, we hope, for your sake, that you find this breast pump immediately.

You got off lightly, but we can’t imagine the fury that will descend upon officials if that pump is lost after the milk was dumped.

We are here hoping for the best…for your sake.
