Mail Tests Positive for Ricin at Pentagon Facility

RICIN DETECTED IN MAIL SENT TO PENTAGON

(CNN) – All mail delivered to the Pentagon Monday is in quarantine.

This after a U.S. Defense official says two pieces of mail initially tested positive for ricin.

The highly toxic compound has been used in previous terror plots.

The pieces of mail never entered the Pentagon building.

It was delivered to the Pentagon’s mail facility, which is in a separate building.

The FBI is expected to do further testing on the mail.
