White powder mailed to New Jersey hotels is corn starch

Super Bowl Football AP

There is apparently nothing to worry about after suspicious packages were mailed to five New Jersey hotels near MetLife Stadium.

The Bergen Record reports that preliminary testing on the white substance mailed to New Jersey hotels revealed that it was corn starch.

Law enforcement authorities are always on high alert in the area surrounding the Super Bowl, and so when word first surfaced of a white powder being found in the mail near the stadium, the FBI and local law enforcement scrambled to the scene. But this sounds like it was someone’s idea of a prank.

The Seahawks and Broncos are staying in New Jersey but are not at any of the hotels affected.

    No one felt stupider than the hotels who paid $2,000 an ounce for the corn starch.

    Keep an eye on Sherman. This was just a tactic to get people looking the other way, while his Adderall was delivered so he could study more tapeā€¦err fight the horrible/terrible/crippling effects of ADHD.

    The Mayor of Toronto was at the hotel waiting for his envelope of “white powder”…..they sent the wrong envelope.

    The powder itself wasn’t considered dangerous, but the fights that broke out among players and fans at the hotel when the packages were opened led to many injuries.

    Perps wanted to create panic and chaos.

    “Attention please, would the person expecting a package of white powder come to the front desk to claim it..”.

    Easy to laugh about this from home, but have you ever eaten a package of raw cornstarch?

    Add to gravy and the plot thickens.
