Bristol Palin is back on Dancing With the Stars--and the suspicious mail is back, too.

Two years after the FBI opened an investigation into who mailed an envelope containing an ultimately harmless white powder to CBS Studios with the intent of spooking Palin, another powder-speckled package found its way to the lot yesterday, an FBI source tells the Hollywood Reporter.

ABC had no comment, while BBC Worldwide Productions said that they take the health and safety of all their competitors and employees very seriously. A rep for Palin also told E! News that they were abiding by the show's policy not to comment on security issues.

Authorities haven't released any official details yet; but, once again, the package was reportedly intended as a threat against Palin's further participation on the show and the only substance found in it was deemed harmless.

Meanwhile, the Life's a Tripp star's detractors may just end up spending another TV season grumbling under their breaths. Despite quickstepping her way to to last place Monday night, Bristol snagged enough votes to keep her safe for another week.

And, though hers wasn't the sprightliest step, she made the semifinals back in season 11.
