A security scare just days ahead of the Super Bowl.
Police, hazmat crews, and the FBI responded to several sites in New Jersey and New York on Friday.
This, after suspicious letters containing a powdery substance were delivered to hotels near MetLife Stadium and an office of former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.
After running tests on the powder, the FBI says the substances were not hazardous.
It appears at least one of the letters contained baking soda.
No injuries were reported, but people who came in contact with the powder were sent to the hospital as a precaution.
