Around 80 workers are being treated by emergency medical services after an incident at an Amazon warehouse in Robbinsville Township, NJ. Officials said a can of aerosol bear repellent exploded after falling off a shelf in the warehouse at about Wednesday morning. About 80 people who reported having difficulty breathing and experiencing a burning sensation in the eyes and throat were treated by EMS on the scene. Roughly 20 of those people have been transferred or are in the process of being transferred to a local hospital. Bear repellent is mostly made of capsaicin, the spicy chemical found in hot peppers.
