A sweet potato got Kevin Bacon.

While going to Los Angeles, Bacon traveled with a...snack and got busted.

As told on "The Tonight Show" earlier this week, Bacon, 61, recounted how he had a run-in with the TSA who flagged his snack in his bag.

He told host Jimmy Fallon that he figured he would be hungry on his way to Los Angeles. 

He shared an Instagram post of the adventure mishap on July 5, writing "Thanks to the hard working folks at #TSA for keeping us safe. If I saw this on the X-ray I would have searched my bag as well."

The host and actor also debated if it was a sweet potato or yam.
