Calif. (AP) -- A woman is facing a possible fine after federal
officials say they found a knife inside an enchilada in her bag during
security screening at a Northern California airport.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says the 8
and a-half inch long blade was found Monday at the Charles M.
Schulz-Sonoma County Airport.

   The passenger, who has not been
identified, said she made the enchilada over the weekend, and didn't
know how the knife got into the bag. She was questioned by Sonoma County
Sheriff's deputies, but then cleared to board her flight.

   Melendez says the TSA will review the case, and the passenger could be issued a fine for carrying a concealed weapon.
