A chemical leak occurred at Jennie-O located in Barron County Monday morning. Highway 8 was temporarily closed and a temporary preventative shelter in place was implemented by the Sheriff’s Department, according to a social post via the Barron County Sheriff’s Department Facebook Page. According to a media release from the Barron County Sheriff’s Department, preventable shelter in place precautions that the Sheriff’s Department had out have been removed. There is no danger to the public. The media release from the Sheriff’s Department says it was two chemicals that mixed together in a tank on the outside of the building. The chemicals were later identified in an updated media release from the Barron County Sheriff’s Department as Anatox and Lysine that had been “accidentally mixed together.”
