KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A federal agency is investigating a report of a carbon dioxide leak at a General Mills plant in Kansas City.
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration says it's looking into the incident at the General Mills plant that led to the evacuation of 110 employees Wednesday after a carbon dioxide alarm went off.
No injuries were reported.
Jean Williams, OSHA's acting area director in Kansas City, says the agency will determine if federal standards were violated leading to the incident.
The agency says carbon dioxide is a colorless, odorless, incombustible gas used in food refrigeration. Symptoms of exposure can include headache and shortness of breath.
The plant mills and packages flour.
