Suspicious substance mailed to Ute Tribe's office was harmless

A suspicious substance that was mailed to the Ute Tribe of Utah turned out to be harmless.

The FBI sent a hazardous materials team to the reservation, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. Initial tests showed the substance wasn't dangerous but two employees were sent to a hospital "out of an abundance of caution," an FBI spokesperson told the paper.

Further tests will be conducted to determine what the substance was.
