(WTXL) - The FBI is advising people to take steps to protect themselves from suspicious mail or packages.
Federal officials are offering the tips after suspicious packages were being mailed to a number of prominent people, including to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
If you see or receive a suspicious package, do not handle it, the FBI advises in a tweet. Additionally, the FBI says, isolate the suspicious package. Don't open it, smell it, or taste it.
Upon receiving a suspicious package, activate your emergency plan, and notify a supervisor, the FBI says.
You should call 911.
If you came in contact with the package, wash your hands with soap and water. The package may contain a bomb (explosive) or radiological, biological or chemical threat.
Protect yourself and your business – learn suspicious package indicators. Do not handle suspicious packages yourself. Call 911 immediately. pic.twitter.com/WytAgIZ6M7
