An envelope full of white powder caused quite the scare at a Coquitlam Shoppers Drug Mart on Friday Afternoon.
RCMP had to evacuate the location, and isolate staff, as they made sure the situation was safe.
The white powder turned out to be crushed vitamins.
An unhappy customer had mailed the product in an envelope, and it became crushed along the way.
Constable Jamie Phillipson says the situation caused a lot of unnecessary panic and anxiety for the community.
He’s urging unhappy customers to return products directly to their local pharmacist for destruction, rather than returning them via Canada Post.
