Police say an investigation continues into the white powder sent in an envelope to an MP's office this morning, although they don't believe it to be hazardous.
The West Midlands force says the staff member who came into contact with the mystery substance at the constituency base of Mike Wood - MP for Dudley South - suffered no ill-effects.
Police attended High Street in Wordsley at about 10:30.
The MP was not in the office at the time and it was evacuated, although people have returned.
The staff member was quarantined in an ambulance and given a hazard protection suit.
Mike Wood is re-elected.

The Dudley South MP Mike Wood has told Parliament it's "good to be back" after he returned to work following his brush with death.
The Conservative MP was hospitalised with life-threatening blood poisoning in January and overcame pneumonia and kidney failure triggered by the condition.
Mr Wood told the Prime Minister: "It's good to be back - and to be honest, it's good to be anywhere...but each year in the UK, 44,000 people are less lucky.
"Will you look at the measures we can take to reduce deaths from sepsis, including awareness raising, including a national registry to properly record the burden of sepsis and effective commissioning levers to incentivise best practice?"
Mrs May, in reply, said: "You are absolutely right to bring a focus on this issue of this devastating condition of sepsis and every death from it of course is a tragedy."
