“The two dozen workers were treated at five local hospitals, Robbinsville Township communications and public information officer John Nalbone told ABC News. One was in critical condition while 30 additional workers were treated at the scene.”

One critical? Yikes!



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Amazon gasses their own employees !!!

Having dehydrated habaneros (in the garage, with the garage door open ) I wouldn't want to be near an aerosol can should it release all at once and get a lung or eye full.

Yikes! That sounds like some serious reactions. Must have been pretty potent stuff.

Reminds me of the time a friend and I had lunch at a local greasy spoon years ago. As we were finishing our meal, George grabbed my keychain on the table and started playing with a small container of pepper spray attached to it. Before I could say anything he pushed the button, releasing a little spritz. I grabbed the keychain from him and told him to watch it.

He had to go to the restroom just before we were ready to leave. As I was sitting there, I could hear people starting to clear their throats, some coughing, a few sneezes, then it seemed like everyone in the place was having a reaction of some kind. Geo came back and sat down, I panicked and told him we better get out of here and jumped up heading for the door. He looked confused, but followed me out. I told him what had happened, that it must have been sucked up into the ventilation system and he had gassed everyone in there. I couldn't believe how just one little spritz could be so effective. smiley-shocked003

Somehow I expected the punch line to be that your friend subsequently ran out of the rest room clutching his nether parts and screaming!
