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.

#TSATravelTips - Be mindful of what you’re traveling with and what it might appear as on an X-ray monitor. These novelty bottles of bath salts topped with wax-covered lids and fuses were discovered in a checked bag at the Denver International Airport (DEN) and resulted in a 20-minute evacuation while bomb specialists cleared the items. What looked like possible explosives were just wedding souvenirs. The bride and groom’s names both start with "T"; thus "TNT.”
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.
