IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa says a white powder that was found leaking from an envelope in the Mayflower Residence Hall mailroom was deemed not hazardous by a postal inspector.

According to Tom Moore, spokesperson for the University of Iowa, HAZMAT crews were called to the Mayflower Residence Hall on the University of Iowa campus after a letter was delivered to the residence hall mailroom that was leaking a white powdery substance.

Moore says that the immediate area was been cordoned off, but the powder was confined to the front desk area and mailroom. Mayflower was not evacuated.

Moore says a postal inspector investigated the envelope and determined it was safe.
