Postal workers and members of Senator Bill Frist's staff are OK. This after a suspicious powder was found in a Connecticut postal facility and in Senator Frist's office.

Initial tests show the powder found in Frist's office tested positive for ricin, a deadly poison. But preliminary tests on the powder taken from an envelope that came through the postal sorting center in Connecticut were inconclusive.

More testing will be done today on both samples.
