"First and foremost our thoughts are obviously with the officer involved, but what appears to have happened is a tennis ball containing a substance has been thrown over the fence," he told the ABC.

"An officer, as part of his duties, has found the ball in question and on opening the ball has been affected by its contents.

"We don't know what the contents are but what it means in the interim is that the institution is in full lockdown, prisoners are not being transferred to their prisons and emergency services are on-site."

The Department for Correctional Services confirmed the incident in a statement to the ABC.

"I can confirm that a suspicious package has been identified at Yatala Labour Prison," deputy chief executive of the department Jackie Bray said.

"MFS and SAPOL are on site to undertake an investigation into the package.

"One staff member has been to taken to hospital in a stable condition with an unidentified illness."

Investigations into the package are continuing.
