UPDATE: The New York Times’ J. David Goodman Tweets the FBI is saying the package contained beauty supplies.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Authorities were investigating a package at New York‘s John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday after two customs inspectors examined it and fell sick, a law enforcement source said.
The inspectors later recovered, the source said.
An FBI spokesman said the bureau had sent a response team to the airport but declined to comment on what the package may have contained, saying the investigation was still ongoing.
A representative of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which oversees the metropolitan region’s airports, did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
