19 egg processing plant employees hospitalized after possible chemical leak
Nineteen employees at a Sullivan County plant were hospitalized over a possible chemical leak on Sunday.
Hazmat response teams from both Sullivan and Orange counties were called in to the Newburg Egg processing facility yesterday after receiving reports of two employees with possible allergic reactions.
The building was evacuated, and 19 staff members were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the illnesses is still under investigation.
