Question: anthrax ?? i work in a post office how would i detect it and what harm does it do im begginning to get worried with all these letter bombs lately . i would tell my supervisor yes as advised but wondered if once touching it it would be too late.. and no i dont open packages lol which is a good point !!

Answer: Sadly, I don't think there is anything to notice anthrax, links below, but packages we are just told to look for anything sucpicous. That means, I think, unusual look, or unique to every other package in some way. I doubt the Police or bomb people would mind if you were just concerned, but, there should be a risk Assesment plan in your work place, or an emergency plan for these eventualities, is there?
