Emergency at CBS Studios

White Powder in Mailroom

9/28/2011 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928_cbs_studio_ex_wmPolice and emergency vehicles arrived to CBS Television City in Hollywood moments ago ... after someone reported that white powder spilled out of a letter in the CBS mailroom.

Law enforcement sources confirm ... cops are investigating the scene.

Sources on the lot tell TMZ ... the letter was NOT addressed to anyone on "Dancing with the Stars" ... but so far, it's unclear who the intended recipient was. 

It's not the first time CBS has had an anthrax scare -- just last year, the studio went on lockdown when production staff found white powder in a letter addressed to Bristol Palin.

Officials also intercepted a threatening letter addressed to "Late Late Show" host Craig Ferguson just last month. The letter also contained white powder -- which was later determined to be cornmeal.

3:21 PM:The L.A. City Hazardous Materials team is on the scene.

4:00 PM: Crisis over. Law enforcement sources tell us the powder is a "non-harmful" substance ... but still unclear what it is.

These white powder scares are so dumb. Only about a handful of people can make anthrax on their own and they're not the types who get upset over the politics of DWTS! Please!
Elizabetta is gone anyway, so what's the point?

It's someone who is disgusted with Ashton Kutcher's performance on the soon-to-be-cancelled show.
