Charmed and Mistresses actress Alyssa Milano lambasted officials at London’s Heathrow Airport on Tuesday, reports ABC, after 10 oz. of her own pre-expressed breast milk were taken from her as she passed through security.

“Every ounce of milk I’m able to produce for my child is nothing short of a miracle and to watch that milk be thrown away without any regard for my baby, was heartbreaking,” said Milano.

According to Heathrow’s screening protocol, passengers traveling with a baby or infant are supposed to be allowed to “carry a reasonable amount” of breast milk through security.

Milano conceded that security staff were “following orders to keep us all safe.” But the actress said she hopes the policy undergoes a “thoughtful consideration.”

Pumping on a plane is difficult. Small FYI.

(2 of 2) They said they would let the pumped milk through if I had the baby with me. Why would I need to pump if I had the baby with me????
