A third letter similar to the two sent to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that tested positive for ricin was also mailed to President Barack Obama, WNBC-TV in New York is reporting:

The letter is being tested for ricin. It was received Thursday at an off-site facility, and did not reach the White House, sources said.

The text of that mailing was identical to the letters sent to the mayor and his gun group, which threatened: "what's in this letter is nothing compared to what I've got planned for you," police and law enforcement sources said.

The FBI is investigating, according to CBS News. The letter was reportedly postmarked Shreveport, La., the same as the letters sent to Bloomberg and his Mayors Against Illegal Guns organization.

Obama was also the intended recipient of a ricin-laced letter last month, along with a U.S. senator and a judge.
