A suspicious package leaking white powder, which shut down the Security-Widefield Post Office late Monday morning, has been determined to be harmless.

The powder was vitamin C, postal service spokesman Ron Perry told 11 News.

An employee spotted the powder shortly before 10 a.m. Monday and evacuated the building as a precaution. Hazmat was called to the scene.

The post office is now running as normal.
