An envelope containing a suspicious white powder was received at Federal Medical Center-Rochester's mailroom Thursday morning, prompting a response from the Rochester Fire Department's hazardous materials and chemical assessment team.
The white powder was visible through a clear plastic window in the envelope, prompting the prison to call the fire department, according to Rochester Fire Department Battalion Chief Steven Belau.
The fire department packaged the envelope to prevent distribution
No inmates came into contact with the substance, according to prison spokesman Dan Cansino.
