Still more info:

A Virgin flight to Adelaide at Brisbane DOM was being loaded.
The loaders noticed a 'strange' smell.
A parcel was located and a white powder was noticed coming from the parcel, the source of the smell.
The aircraft was isolated.
Apon examination the power turned out to be Bicarb Soda.
Apparently a lady was sending bananas and paw paws interstate and using bicarb to 'suck up' the smell.

She wont be doing that again.

(all info is second hand) Have you heard more accurate info?
