Boca Raton, Fla. -- American Media Inc.'s headquarters has been declared a Superfund site by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Washington, D.C.

EPA officials have closed the building to perform more testing after anthrax spores were discovered in the mailroom and on the keyboard of a photo editor who died from the inhaled form of the disease.

The Superfund designation has allowed the federal government to pay $500,000 for cleanup costs.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) turned the building over to the EPA last weekend after agents spent two weeks scouring the offices for evidence.
