It sounds as though a threat was phoned in or sent via the internet about liquids on board

Flight is: 1267

Apparently it was a "birthday hoax" called in to the Philly PD (although other sources are saying the PPD didn't receive a phone call).

This one says it was airport police that received a call:

So nobody is quite sure what the real story is except that it's a hoax and there were no explosives on board. Hopefully they punish whoever it was that thought this would be a hilarious birthday surprise.
