UPDATE: 12:24 edt.

A suspicious package containing a toner cartridge with wires and powder was found during routine screening of cargo in the United Kingdom, prompting authorities to scour three planes and a truck in the United States on Friday. Searches were conducted in Philadelphia, Newark, N.J., and New York City.

During a basic security screening process in the United Kingdom, officials found a suspicious item on a cargo plane, according to a U.S. government official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation.

U.K. officials discovered that a toner cartridge on the plane had been manipulated and found wires attached to it and white powder. Tests on the device came back negative for explosives, according to a law enforcement official who also spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation.

Concerns about the possibility of similar and potentially dangerous devices shipped elsewhere prompted officials to check other cargo headed to the U.S.

UPDATE: 11:50 edt-

FNC says they have confirmed that the feds are looking at 'several suspicious' packages from planes in Philly and a small/regional airport in England.

At least on aircrew reported a radiological warning. Crews were checked and cleared of any contamination.

The planes all seem at this point (and it's a fast moving story) to connect back to Yemen.
