Powder at Erie Insurance Harmless

Posted: Updated:

Hazardous materials crews have determined that a powder found in the mail room of the Erie Insurance Exchange is not a threat.

Those crews were called to the insurance giant when a worker found the substance in an envelope in the mail room, which was quickly secured.

Emergency management workers say the powder turned out to be a common cleaning agent.

Science has made great strides in recent years in developing field tests that can quickly determine if an agent is potentially harmful.

There is no word yet if it was a misunderstanding or an attempted hoax.

The secured mail room has been reopened and work has returned to normal at the complex.
