Denver airport officials say hundreds of bags were loaded onto airplanes in late December without being run through security scanners.
The Transportation Security Administration says it's investigating.
Denver International Airport Manager of Aviation Kim Day says the incident involved "a couple thousand" bags. An airport memo indicates the bags bypassed scanners because of a human error in programming a computer.The unscanned bags went on United Airlines flights.
The breach was first reported by KMGH-TV in Denver.
