MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Thousands of Minnesotans got one an empty medicine bottle in the mail over the weekend.

There’s no cause for concern, because the empty medicine bottle was meant as a test to see how quickly postal workers could distribute medicine in an emergency.

They delivered them to select neighborhoods in the Twin Cities on Sunday. The Minnesota Department of Health says there is no threat, but they want to have a plan in place just in case there’s a major medical emergency.

If you did get one of the bottles, you can toss it in your recycling bin.
