DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - Police say a pressure cooker left in a suburban Detroit hotel bathroom that prompted a three-hour evacuation had food inside and posed no threat.

Dearborn police Lt. Douglas Topolski told The Associated Press Tuesday a guest likely used the appliance to bring food to a family event Sunday in the 770-room Adoba Hotel. He says it "doesn't appear that there was a very nefarious intent."

Pressure cookers have gotten attention after two were used in the Boston Marathon bombings.

This month, a Saudi man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport on charges of lying about why he was traveling with one. The man says he brought it for his nephew, who told AP he wanted it to cook lamb.

Topolski says the cooker at the hotel had a broken handle.
