A student’s pressure-cooker rice dish sparked some panic in a Michigan neighborhood.

According to reports, the FBI swooped down on a Saudi student’s apartment after neighbors saw him carrying a pressure cooker and alerted police.

Turns out he was carrying a rice dish to a friend’s house.

Pressure cookers have gotten a bad rap in recent weeks, after two shrapnel-packed cooker bombs were detonated at the Boston marathon.

Three people were killed and 260 others were injured.
