A threatening letter containing white powder, "brought police, firefighters and the FBI to the CBS studios in the Fairfax District Friday night," reports KTLA.

The questionable powder was found in a piece of "fan mail" addressed to Bristol Palin and sent to the production offices for Dancing With The Stars, according to TMZ.

FBI initial screenings reported negative for hazardous substances, however the gathered evidence will be sent to a regional lab for further testing as a precaution. ABC says the white material was talcum powder.
