Suspicious substance is really infant formula

A suspicious substance found in a Zeeland manufacturing plant's mailroom Thursday was actually infant formula that spilled from a torn packet.

"Upon inspection, we discovered a formula sample had been torn open in this morning's mail delivery," a spokesperson for the Mead Johnson Nutrition Co. said in an e-mail release on the incident Thursday.

Mead Johnson makes formula for children at its Zeeland facility.

The spilled formula incident was reported at 1:30 p.m. It led to a brief police and fire department response to the Main Street facility.

In May, emergency crews evacuated the Mead Johnson facility due to a chlorine leak. Seven people were treated in that incident.



hahahaha OMG they make the stuff there that spilled on the floor of the mail room, and that is cause for police and firemen to respond. Because you just know a terrorist will send something bad to a baby formula factory. Nobody had the sense to check it themselves first, because I am sure it didn't look like anything they had ever seen. What mentality. Was this a union shop? I doubt it very much. Just a bunch of temps who reiterate the infamous Schultzy "I know NOTHING!"
