Chemical in Candy Set Off Airport Alarm

Does anyone find this news heading alarming?  A chemical.  A chemical in candy!?

In the candy you eat or perhaps hand your children are chemicals strong enough to set off an airport security alarm?  Are you alarmed?

This is a paragraph from the article:

"It was later determined that the candy, which was harmless, contained a chemical compound that triggered the alarm. "

I guess the candy was harmless in that it presented no terrorist threat.  But why isn't a chemical compound in candy considered harmful to one's body?

The article never states what the chemical was exactly, but I have two posts on the issue of candy pollutants and alternatives here and here.
