Bear repellent sends 24 Amazon employees to a hospital, at least one of which is in critical condition / Boing Boing



An Amazon warehouse in New Jersey sent 24 employees to the hospital after being exposed to repellent fumes.

Others were treated in the warehouse. The staff had trouble breathing and said their throat was burning. At least one of the workers is in critical condition.

According to the Seattle Times, "bear repellent fell off a shelf and released fumes."

Hundreds of workers are usually in the building during workdays and it is unclear how many were exposed.

Amazon confirmed that the accident dispersed strong fumes around the facility. The incident is being investigated.
