WINDSOR, Colo. (AP) Two households called authorities after receiving empty brown envelopes from Florida, where anthrax was discovered, but authorities said Wednesday the envelopes posed no health risk.
Larimer County Sheriff's spokeswoman Eloise B. Campanella said the envelopes were sent by Mailing By Innovation, of DeLand, Fla. The company accidentally omitted advertising brochures from the envelopes, which resembled lunch bags.
Tests found no contamination, Campanella said.
DeLand is about 190 miles south of Boca Raton, Fla., where one man died from inhaled anthrax and traces of anthrax were found in the nose of a co-worker. The co-worker was expected to recover.
Campanella said no one in Windsor exhibited any symptoms.
Two households in the same neighborhood received the envelopes and called authorities Tuesday. The Poudre Fire Authority Hazardous Materials Team and the Larimer County Health Department responded. They turned over the envelopes to the state Department of Public Health and Environment for testing.
