This article states that the US consulate got it also.

Envelopes containing unidentified yellow powder were sent to the United States and Canadian consulates in Istanbul on Friday, as well as several other diplomatic offices, officials said. The German and Belgian consulates in the Turkish city also received the suspicious packages and several people from the Canadian and Belgian missions were hospitalized. "The person has been decontaminated as a precaution and there is no reason to believe that the were chemical or biological agents in the powder," AFAD Spokesman Doğan Eşkinat told NBC News, referring to a Canadian staff member taken to hospital. Joren Vandeweyer, spokesman with the Belgian Foreign Office, said two members of Belgian staff were hospitalized but were showing no symptoms.
