UPDATE: Univeter Road re-opened after spill of chemicals outside poultry plant
CANTON – An acid spill at the Pilgrim's Pride chicken processing plant near Canton shut down Univeter Road, Interstate 575 and forced evacuations earlier this afternoon. Four people were taken to Northside Hospital Cherokee with breathing difficulty.

The situation was contained and Univeter Road reopened about 7:15 p.m.

Hazardous materials personnel are evaluating how to clean up the leaking chemical, sheriff's office spokesman Jay Baker said just after 5:30 p.m. The spill occurred at approximately 2 p.m. as FedEx delivered a shipment of organic peroxide type F to the Pilgrim's Pride chicken plant at 654 Univeter Road.

The truck contains six, 300-gallon containers of the liquid, which when highly diluted is used for cleaning in the plant. Hazmat workers are concerned other containers may begin to leak as well and are evaluating how to attack the problem and effect the cleanup.

Mystery odor briefly evacuates classes at Washington High in Cedar Rapids
A strange odor of unknown origin in a science classroom at Washington High School led to the sealing and evacuation of that room and nearby rooms on Thursday afternoon in Cedar Rapids.

According to a news release from the Cedar Rapids Fire Department, crews arrived at Washington High at 2:21 p.m. Thursday after the report of a “suspicious odor” in the area. Some students and a teacher were also complaining of scratchy throats, the release said.

The first fire crew on scene evacuated and isolated the classroom and rooms that shared a common hallway. The building’s ventilation system was also isolated, and the classroom in question was “enclosed with tape,” according to the release.

Paramedics assessed two students who did not require any further treatment.

The incident happened near the end of the school day, so students left campus and the school building as normal, according to the release. After the students left, firefighters entered the room wearing protective equipment, but there was no indication of any hazardous chemicals, according to the release.

Firefighters inspected the room again without protective equipment, and they determined it was safe.

Cedar Rapids Fire Captain Joel Miles said the firefighters were unable to locate the odor’s origin. After interviewing students and the teacher involved, Miles said some indicated there had been a smell remiscent of formalehyde, while another student said it may have been pepper spray. Miles said firefighters ruled out pepper spray because no one in the classroom exhibited symptoms of being exposed to pepper spray, which generally causes watery eyes and running noses.

Children sick after mystery substance dropped over Wairarapa primary school
Fifteen people have been taken to hospital and over 100 people are going through a decontamination process after a chemical incident at South End school in Carterton, Wairarapa.

Wellington Free Ambulance (WFA) said those in hospital have moderate symptoms, and 40 people are being treated at the scene with very minor symptoms.

A low-flying aircraft is believed to have dropped an unknown substance over the school playground at around 1pm on Friday.

The Fire and Emergency Hazmat (hazardous materials) unit was dispatched to decontaminate people, which involves showering and putting on clean clothes.

South End school said in a post on Facebook that there was a "very strong smell" in the playground.

"A plane flew in a southward direction and one student had seen 'stuff' coming out of the plane - so we assume it was a fertiliser of some sort," the post said.

Worker's eye removed after chemical accident
A worker had to have his eye removed after an incident involving a corrosive cleaning product at a Tauranga mussel processing plant.

North Island Mussels Limited was handed a $219,375 fine in the Tauranga District Court on Friday.

The worker received $60,000 in reparation for the January 2017 incident.

The worker was decanting a cleaning product when a piece of tubing flicked him in the eye.

* Francois Barton: Health and safety - it's not just red tape
* Complacency rises in workplace health and safety, and we're all to blame

The corrosive product and the impact of the tubing left him with damage so significant that his eye had to be removed. The resulting scarring also meant the victim could not be fitted with a prosthetic eye.

WorkSafe said the worker should not have needed to decant the cleaning product and that a safer system of work would have avoided the incident all together.

Three people at the Summer Glen Apartment complex In Immokalee said they noticed an overwhelming foul smell in their apartment.
