White Powder Sent to NYC Federal Building Not Toxic: Source

An envelope containing white powder was sent to a federal building in Manhattan Friday morning, prompting an emergency response, though tests revealed the substance was non-toxic, according to a law enforcement source.

Two people on the 37th floor of 26 Federal Plaza in Foley Square had been exposed to the substance and though they showed no symptoms, they were isolated as a precaution, authorities said. 

The source of the envelope wasn't known.
