The FBI was called in to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport after at least two customs agents were sickened on Sunday after opening a package at a postal processing facility, ABC News Radio reported.

Port Authority officials say the air tested positive for nerve gas, but that does not necessarily prove that some sort of attack was intended, ABC News said. The chemical found is more likely a standard-use chemical that shouldn’t have been in the mail like a solvent or degreaser.

The FBI said additional testing is underway.

The condition of the customs agents is not yet known.
