Early Monday morning, Vanessa Trump was rushed to the hospital after she complained of experiencing nausea when she was exposed the unidentified substance.

Reports say she and two other people were decontaminated at the scene by firefighters.

Officials say they appear to be okay, and the white powder was deemed non-hazardous.

Authorities have been on alert for mail with white powder in it since 2001 when envelopes laced with anthrax were sent to media outlets and U.S. lawmakers, killing five people.

Both police and the Secret Service are investigating the incident.
