A hazmat crew was called to investigate a suspicious package labeled “anthrax” that was left at the office of Rep. Maxine Waters Tuesday.

After further investigation, the Los Angeles Fire Department found that no hazardous materials were found and that no one required hospitalization, ABC News reports.

Waters has been on the receiving end of death threats and criticism after calling for the public to “push back” on the administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy that separates families. President Donald Trump directly threatened Waters for her comments against his administration in June. 
 
“Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!”

But Waters wasn’t having it:  “I know that there are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me,” she told a crowd during Los Angeles rally last month.

“All I have to say is this, if you shoot me you better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal,” she said.
 
Last week, she had to warn her supporters to be careful of potentially armed protests from the extremist group, the Oath Keepers, outside of her  office,
