Talk about a serious oversight...
Amanda Seyfried boarded a plane Friday, March 14, with a knife in her pocket. Security didn't catch on to it and she hadn't realized it until she was already on the plane. The "Lovelace" actress then tweeted TSA with a message so these scary situations won't repeat themselves:
Dear TSA: This Swiss Army knife wasn't detected through security and I unknowingly carried it on board. Scary! pic.twitter.com/C996LjZa2P

In March of last year, TSA announced it will allow retractable knives (with blades shorter then 2.4 inches and narrower than .5 inches at the widest point) in carry-on bags starting April 2013. But by June, TSA announced it has abandoned the plan in the face of fierce congressional and industry opposition.
