On September 15, 2009, the ER was conducting a start-up of a new chlorine dioxide disinfectant for food processing, when the concentration was ramped up. The residual organics reacted with the chlorine dioxide stream and created chlormines; a probable effect of under chlorination. This water mist, which was irritating, was breathed in by the employee. Seventeen employees were treated and released by the local hospitals.
