White powder found in vial at VA hospital is actually sugar

WACO, TX (KXXV) - VA officials have confirmed the white powder found inside a vial sent in a package to the Waco VA hospital is actually sugar. 

The pharmacy received a returned package, and there was an unopened vial of white powder found inside. The pharmacy called the safety department, who called the fire department, who then called out hazmat crews.

No one is hurt, but the pharmacy was evacuated as a precaution about 3 p.m. Friday.

After a couple tests, crews figured out the powder was harmless and was sugar. 

The vial will now be kept by the Waco Fire Department for training purposes.
