It seems you can never be too careful when sending your luggage through airport security checkpoints these days, evidenced by a recent precaution taken in the Mile High City.
The Denver Channel reported that Transportation Security Administration agents evacuated a part of Denver International Airport Sept. 22 after screeners examining a piece of checked luggage discovered bottles containing wax and fuses that read "TNT."
The backroom inspection area was evacuated for at least 20 minutes while bomb specialists looked over the bag.
While undoubtedly threatening at first, it turns out the objects were harmless wedding favors filled with bath salts, which the TSA confirmed in a post on its official Instagram account Thursday.
"Be mindful of what you’re traveling with and what it might appear as on an X-ray monitor," the TSA warned in the post.
The TNT label, which likely prompted the evacuation, represents the first initial of both the bridge and groom.
Family members who spoke with the Denver Channel said the couple tied the knot in Lyons, France.
