Employees at the El Al Cargo Facility near Los Angeles International Airport were evacuated Wednesday morning due to a suspicious package investigation.

Local television station KTLA reported the call to the police arrived at around 6:30 a.m. (local time).

Bomb squads responded after an X-ray unit detected some kind of chemical in a package that was passing through a machine.  The liquid was later determined to be non-hazardous. 

An unknown amount of employees were temporarily evacuated from the facility while police investigated.
