Birds Eye Foods employees evacuated in Waseca


WASECA, Minn. (AP) -- An ammonia leak at the Birds Eye Foods plant in Waseca caused employees to evacuate.

Fire Chief Gary Conrath says the source of the leak Wednesday evening was a gasket on some equipment in the compressor room. Employees were later allowed to return to the building after it was ventilated.

The Faribault Daily News says no one required medical attention.
