It's as suspicious as tupelo honey

A food writer's bag containing recording equipment, tupelo honey, an oyster shell and seasoning rub was blamed for a three-hour shutdown and evacuation of Tallahassee's airport Monday, authorities said. It looked suspicious on the scanner and someone pressed the alarm.

The bag's owner, Todd Coleman, food editor for New York-based Saveur magazine, was detained but later released after a robot opened the bag.

Thanks to cesarflor, whomever you might be, for the alert.
