Hello, and welcome. Hard cheese is permitted in carry-on luggage and checked baggage. This is for domestic travel only. The TSA says:"Search Results For:cheeseCheck or Carry-onSolid food items (not liquids or gels) can be transported in either your carry-on or checked baggage. Liquid or gel food items larger than 3.4 oz are not permitted in carry-on baggage and should be placed in your checked baggage if possible.All food products should be properly packaged to avoid spilling during the screening process and damaging security equipment and other passengers' belongings. Cakes and pies are permitted as carry-on items, but could require additional screening.Even if an item is generally permitted, it may be subject to additional screening or not allowed through the checkpoint if it triggers an alarm during the screening process, appears to have been tampered with, or poses other security concerns. The final decision rests with TSA on whether to allow any items on the plane." Please note, the cheese will be subject to x-ray during the screening process and may be selected for 'additional screening,' so don't wrap it up like a gift. Wrap it as simply as possible so if it must be inspected, it can be, with the smallest amount of time and trouble. No limit on quantities is mentioned. It's also up to the particular screener you get, who may tell you no, you cannot bring the cheese. If that happens, ask for a Supervisor, especially if you know that the cheese you're bringing is not on the 'prohibited list.' If it is a hard cheese, that's permitted. If it is a creamy cheese like a dip or spread, it is not allowed in carry-on baggage, but is allowed in checked baggage. I hope this helps.
