Another letter has tested positive for the poison, ricin. This time, the letter was addressed to President Obama.

The FBI says the letter is from the same sender who mailed the ricin-filled letter to Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker.

The letter sent to the president was intercepted at an off-site White House mail facility.

Federal officials say they do not believe this is connected to the Boston Marathon bombings.
