"It initially came in as a possible ricin call, but hazmat went in and investigated and found no powder or trace of any other harmful chemical," Asay said.
As a matter of routine and procedure, however, the envelope, CD and business card will be tested further, he added.
Brett Leifson, chief financial officer for X96 owner Broadway Media, said a station employee found the suspicious envelope while opening mail Monday morning. He confirmed it was addressed from out of state, contained a CD and a card.
The station regularly gets CDs in the mail from promoters and "budding artists," Leifson said, so that was not unusual.
However, the card apparently had writing on it that the employee thought "was from a crazy person." The paper, the employee thought, also "felt funny." Finally, when he Googled the name on the card, it purportedly linked to an undisclosed person associated with past ricin incidents, the employee said.
Police were called, leading to the SLCFD's hazmat crew eventually responding.
After a brief lockdown of the offices, the scene was cleared and station operations resumed as normal.
