Bomb squad called to Ohio airport detonates pickled mangoes
COLUMBUS, Ohio - An Ohio airport summoned a bomb squad to detonate a suspicious item that turned out to be pickled mangoes.
X-ray equipment used by federal security screeners in Columbus could not detect what was inside a sealed canister in luggage being inspected around 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The container was labeled "baby food," but authorities say security personnel became suspicious when the woman who owned the suitcase claimed the canister held pickles.
A fire department bomb squad removed the item from the airport and detonated it, discovering the mangoes.
