According to Fox News, officials at the Pentagon have found at least two packages sent their way which they believe contain "ricin," a deadly powdered poison made from castor beans.
This happened shortly after a false alarm at the Ted Cruz office in Texas where a suspicious white, powdery substance sent there was deemed non-toxic.
"Authorities at the Pentagon found at least two packages suspected of containing ricin, a spokesman said Tuesday, with the news coming amid a scare at Sen. Ted Cruz's office in Houston involving a "white powdery substance" that turned out to not be hazardous.
A Pentagon spokesman confirmed to Fox News that two packages -- addressed to U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis and the Navy's top officer, Admiral John Richardson -- are suspected of containing ricin."
Last June, a Wisconsin mom was accused of spreading ISIS propaganda online-- including teaching people how to make ricin and how to send it to a government facility or water reservoir. In that same month a ricin attack by another Islamic extremist was foiled in Germany.
