MARION, Ill. - Crushed candy canes are to blame for a 'suspicious' package that brought out the Hazmat team at the Marion VA Wednesday.
A Hazmat team is being sent to the mailroom at the Marion VA Hospital.
Peggy Willoughby, spokesperson for the Marion VA hospital, says an employee in the mailroom thought a package looked suspicious.  A Hazmat team was called in to inspect the package.
Willoughby says the package was a Christmas card mailed to one of the employees with several crushed candy canes inside.

The hospital did not shut down.  This marks the second time in two months a Hazmat team has been called to the facility.
