DENVER -- Wedding favors that looked like fake bombs caused an evacuation at the Denver International Airport last month, according to the Transportation Security Agency.

The souvenirs marked "TNT," were found in a checked bag as they went through the airport's X-ray machine.

The gifts turned out to be bottles of bath salts with red wax-covered lids and a wick that resembled a fuse.

According to an Instagram post by TSA, the names of the bride and groom both started with "T," so they put "TNT" on the side of the bottles.

Bomb specialists were called in and the airport was evacuated for about 20 minutes so each of the bottles could be examined.

TSA posted the photo to Instagram to remind travelers to be mindful of what they bring onto planes.
