Quarantine lifted after mystery powder sickens 3 in Alameda


San Francisco Chronicle

By Kimberly Veklerov, 14 hrs ago


Three people said they felt ill and about 20 others were quarantined Wednesday after an employee in a U.S. Customs and Border Protection office in Alameda reported opening an envelope that contained a powdery substance, officials said.


The incident occurred on the 2400 block of Mariner Square Loop about 12:45 p.m., said Juan Medrano, a spokesman for the Alameda Fire Department. Hazardous materials personnel responding to the report, however, said they couldn’t find a substance and lifted the quarantine shortly before 4 p.m.

The envelope, which was addressed to the agency and delivered by a private mail carrier, was taken to a lab for further investigation, officials said. They said two of the three people reporting illness were taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure.

“Once we identify what it is,” Medrano said, “we can figure out how to deal with the substance itself and what levels of decontamination are needed.”
