Jeanne Baratta, chief of staff at the Bergen County Executive’s Office, said midday Friday that the substances were found at two hotel sites in Carlstadt and another in East Rutherford, according to the Bergen Record. Hazmat units were also dispatched to two hotels in Lyndhurst, where "suspicious letters" were discovered.
CNN reports that, following an investigation, the FBI determined that the substances were non-hazardous, and East Rutherford mayor James Cassella told the network that the substance was cornstarch.
Lyndhurst Police Chief James O'Connor said that similar letters were also received at the Courtyard at Marriot and the Quality Inn.
Law enforcement officials told CNN that they were testing white powder contained in a letter sent to the Manhattan office of former mayor Rudy Giuliani.
There have been no injuries, according to New York City TV reports, with WABC7 saying no evacuations were ordered.
