“At this time, there is no known threat to public safety,” said the FBI.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ricin is a poison found naturally in castor beans. If castor beans are chewed and swallowed, the released ricin can cause injury. Ricin can be made from the waste material left over from processing castor beans. It can be a form of powder, mist, or a pellet, or it can be dissolved in water or weak acid.

In 2018, the similar incident happened where a federal grand jury returned a seven-count indictment against a Utah man, alleging that he threatened President Donald Trump and other administration officials in letters, some of which contained the natural ingredients which ricin is made out of.
