Coloma food company evacuated for gas cloud


Employees at a Coloma food company had to be evacuated Thursday morning because of a chemical spill.

Coloma Frozen Foods tells FOX28 there was a cross contamination of cleaning supplies that caused a small gas cloud.  Apparently an employee took a pump from a barrel of Chlorine bleach and accidentally put it in a barrel full of another chemical.

Employees were evacuated as a precautionary measure.  No injuries or negative reactions have been reported.  Everyone is expected to be able to return on Friday.
