A bottle of lotion is being blamed for the evacuation of the Daytona Beach International Airport.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said someone spotted the suspicious item just after 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

Investigators said the item looked like a possible detonator during screening. The bomb squad responded and determined the item to be lotion.

The airport evacuation impacted about 200 passengers and workers, and delayed two flights. The all-clear came about an hour later, the sheriff's office said.
