Test Results Show Substance At Raleigh Post Office Was Not Anthrax

Posted October 26, 2001

— The test results are back on the grainy substance that someone found in a letter at a downtown Raleigh Post Office. They show it was not anthrax.

Test results show the substance was simple dirt and grit, possibly sand. The county health department does not plan for any additional follow-up.

The Century Postal Station was evacuated and closed Tuesday. It opened back up for business on Wednesday.
