The Toronto Transit Commission tweeted that the situation was "all clear" around 7:15 p.m.

The stunt, dubbed "#searchandrescue," was designed for consumers to find boxes containing prizes. On Twitter, the brand apologized for any inconvenience commuters may have experienced and announced the promotion was over:
