Security officials issued an all-clear at Boston's Logan International Airport Tuesday after a suspicious package was discovered at a cargo area, NBC News reported.

Airport spokesman Phil Orlandella said a K-9 doing routine security indicated a scent by sitting down as he passed two duffel bags marked with a Nigerian address.

Orlandella called it a "low-level threat" but said authorities wanted to make sure the bags were fully examined.

The packages contained bedding material, NBC News reported.

Orlandella said no passenger were affected since the cargo building is about a mile away from passenger gates. Regular air traffic has not been effected, NBC News reported.
