The closure affected Terminal One, boarding area C, which primarily serves Delta Airlines.
The package went through one of the X-Ray machines, airport spokesman, Mike McCarron explained. The operator didnt like what they saw as far as what was inside the package, asked for assistance, and it was very suspicious. There was no word when the closure would be lifted. McCarron did point out that it was typically a slower time of the day at the airport, and passengers were being routed to other gates and checkpoints.

I can see this thread derailing quite easily.
Maybe it was just algae seeds for a new SF Bay Area refinery.
