An American Airlines flight heading from Boston to Miami was forced to return to Logan Airport Sunday morning because of smoke caused by burning bread crumbs.

Flight 1532 took off at 6:36 a.m. and was back on the ground at 7:10 a.m., said Dori Alvarez , spokeswoman for American Airlines. Maintenance crews determined the smell came from inside one of the plane’s ovens, Alvarez said.

The 150 passengers and five flight crew members were back in the air at 8:29 a.m., Alvarez said.
