The package was delivered to the office around 2:30 p.m., and about 100 employees had to be quarantined for a time during the investigation due to the unknown nature of the substance.
The DCF building, located at 33 Wellington Road, was mostly evacuated as the FBI, U.S. Postal Inspector, State Police, State Police Bomb Squad, the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and Milford fire, hazmat, police and public health departments investigated the package, which contained a suspiciouswhite powder in two small containers. One container was broken, exposing the powder.
The package was sent from another country.
The substance was taken to the state lab for further analysis, but initial testing shows it is not hazardous. No one was injured or got sick, and employees were cleared to go home.
The building will be open on Wednesday, and people were allowed to go back inside to grab their personal items.
