The FBI office in Minneapolis says the letter sent to the Federal Aviation Administration office in Minneapolis has returned negative for any “biological agents”.

On Tuesday, employees evacuated the building at 6020 S 28th Street Ave near the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The office had received a letter containing a suspicious material and as a precaution, four employees were sent to the hospital.

The FAA Minneapolis office oversees aircraft certification, security, pilot licensure and regulatory compliance, as well as airline and airport regulatory compliance.

FBI spokesperson Michael Kulstad said on Wednesday the Minnesota Department of Health’s Public Health Lab tested the letter and it returned “negative for any biological agents.”

The FBI is still investigating who sent the letter.
