The San Mateo bomb unit responded to the Tuesday afternoon threat at the company's campus in Menlo Park, California, the Menlo Park Police Department said in a statement.

Police gave the all clear at Facebook's head office in Menlo Park, California, after a suspicious package was ruled safe around 8 p.m. local time, according to CBS San Fransisco.

Police said they secured a perimeter around the building and diverted traffic during the incident.

Facebook's headquarters in Menlo Park, California has been evacuated after a reported bomb scare.

A spokeswoman said: "We take the safety and security of our people at Facebook extremely seriously and are glad that everyone is safe".

Menlo Park P.D. said they received a call at 4:32 p.m. from New York Police Department Crime Stoppers that they had received an anonymous tip that a bomb was in the building.

Even though that specific building was emptied, the rest of the sprawling Facebook campus was not told to evacuate.
