According to KYW, a 55-gallon drum began leaking cleaning solution. The chemical is typically used to clean the plant's containers through which milk is processed, and though a hazmat team and the police department appeared at the scene, the incident was described as a minor one.

A few hours after the leak broke out, the plant reported that the spill did not contaminate any food or products, nor did it cause an evacuation of the plant. No injuries were reported.
