The Transportation Safety Administration is investigating after a woman claims one of its workers left a note in her luggage urging her to "get (her) freak on."

Jill Filipovic, a blogger at Feministe.us, discovered the note after landing in Dublin on Sunday.

"Just unpacked my suitcase and found this note from TSA," she tweeted. "Guess they discovered a 'personal item' in my bag. Wow."

Filipovic said she had packed a sex toy in her suitcase, and while she initially laughed at the note, she told Fox News she's now "pretty disturbed" and would likely file a complaint when she returns to the U.S.

"I hope they do see the complaint, they'll look into it and remind their staff that going through people's personal belongings is a responsibility that should be treated with some modicum of professionalism," she told ABC News.

Filipovic tweeted a picture of the note on which, alongside the official form, someone had scrawled "GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL" in big capital letters.

In a statement to Fox News, TSA officials said there was no evidence to suggest one of its agents was involved but "takes all allegations of inappropriate conduct seriously and is investigating this claim."
