A letter containing a white powdery substance was sent Tuesday to a foundation that houses the office of former President Barack Obama in Washington, according to news reports.

The substance turned out to be baby powder, The Washington Examiner reports.

Law enforcement officials received the call at 11:05 a.m. — and members of the Metropolitan Police Department, District of Columbia Fire and EMS departments responding within three minutes.

The letter had been sent to the headquarters of the World Wildlife Fund, which is where Obama's office is located.

In addition, a hazardous materials team and the U.S. Secret Service also responded. The scene cleared by 1:15 p.m., Metro Police Department officials told the Examiner.

On Monday, the daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump, Vanessa Trump, was hospitalized in New York after opening a letter containing a white powdery substance.

The letter was addressed to her husband, Donald Trump Jr.

New York City Police later said that the substance was not toxic, according to the report.
