A toothpaste alert has been issued by authorities for passengers flying to America from Russia due to potential terrorist attacks, Inquisitr reports Feb. 5. The precaution was brought up by a law enforcement source even though there were no "concrete threats" as the Winter Olympics in Sochi are just around the corner.

“It’s real. It’s real and we got very good information,” an unidentified source told CNN. “It’s based on a credible source. We’re taking it seriously so are other countries taking it very seriously.”
