White powder found, but no threat at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport

A plastic bag containing white powder was found early Thursday afternoon at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, but it turned out to be harmless, an airport spokeswoman said.

However, service at the E7 ticket counter in Terminal E, where the bag was found, was diverted to a downstairs counter until airport officials gave an all clear, said Cynthia Vega, the spokeswoman.

A worker found the bag around 1:30 p.m. and normal service resumed at the E7 ticket counter about an hour later, Vega said. A road outside the terminal also was briefly closed, Vega said.

Officials did not know what the white powder was, but they were confident that it was harmless, Vega said.
