Earlier this morning, a suspicious package was found outside Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions Inc. in Chicago, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Chicago police have confirmed that the item did not explode and no one was hurt. A security guard had found a dark-colored backpack with wires hanging out of it in a flowerbed outside the studio where Winfrey records her television show. Police have not yet said whether the package had the capacity to explode.

UPDATE: Chicago police have determined that there was no bomb in the backpack, but they are not revealing what the package actually contained. [AP]
