need help with error "SendChatMessage(): Invalid escape code in chat message"

I am having an error doing a SendChatMessage() to send a notification to guild chat to announce a "ding". In this message I want to include my /played information so I have the following code:


to get time played in string:
Code:
if (event == "TIME_PLAYED_MSG") then 
	if (arg1 ~= nil) then
		--Get time played
		timePassed = SecondsToTime(arg1);
        end
end
then to send the message I do:
Code:
SendChatMessage("Ding Notification!!! - I just reached level " .. newlvl .. " in " .. timePassed, "GUILD", nil,nil);
this is giving the followin error:

Any Ideas?

I did a test code of
Code:
DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("timePassed: " ..timePassed)
and it shows up as "timePassed: 50 Days 10hrs" so I dont know what could be an escape code.
