Wedding favors cause airport evacuation

Wedding gifts caused an evacuation at the Denver airport after TSA agents thought a bag contained explosives.

An agent watching an X-ray monitor in a screening room at Denver International Airport spotted wax and fuses inside a checked bag.

TSA said the bride and groom's names both start with a "T," so their wedding favors for their guests were labeled TNT.

The incident happened Sept. 22.

TSA wrote issued a statement on Instagram that there was a 20-minute evacuation while bomb specialists checked the bag.

They determined that while the wax and fuses were on bottles that said TNT, inside was just bath salts.

The TSA said:  "Be mindful of what you’re traveling with and what it might appear as on an X-ray monitor."
