'Hazardous material' nothing but cookie mix


An emergency call about a white powder turned out to be nothing more than dry cookie mix.

Grande Prairie RCMP and the Fire Department responded to a hazardous material call on Friday.

Police say they responded to the call at the Downtown Coop around 6 p.m. after a postal employee found a white powder.

All store occupants were evacuated, however it was later determined that the powder was cookie mix that had been sent as a present in the mail.
