We’ve been saying for awhile – chili powder is hazardous material. And sure enough, this week in Las Cruces, NM, a hazmat crew was called out because of a chili powder incident!
Oh, yes! And a woman went to the hospital and 30 others had either irritated eyes, a sore throat or bloody noses.The clarion call of Chameleon is not being heeded about the dangers of chili powder in wrong or careless hands. This whole terrible incident could have been prevented with the correct safeguards. Again, chili powder is meant to be eaten not wasted in hazardous waste incidents like this. Where were the soups, the tacos, the beef that this stuff could have gone into?
Fortunately, the incident was contained. Officials found that a Las Cruces company that grinds chile pods into powder had a problem with their ventilation. Habanero chile particles that came from the grinding lingered in the cold evening air after employees finished their work, then went into ventilation systems. Disastrous but fortunately no chili powder fission reaction took place.
We are getting very hoarse about this issue. Respect chili powder.
Use Chameleon Chili Sauce for peaceful purposes like breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s a gourmet taste that can’t go wrong. No need for a hazmat suit.
Remember chili powder doesn’t hurt people, people do! Buy Chameleon.
