Eight employees at a plastics packaging facility in Morgantown, Pa., were transported to a local hospital after elevated levels of carbon monoxide were detected at the location.
All employees were "evaluated and released" from the hospital following the Jan. 2 incident, according to Berry Global Group Inc., owner of the Morgantown, Pa., plant.
The incident caused temporary closure of the RPC Bramlage location, which resumed production at 6 a.m. Jan. 3, according to a Berry spokeswoman.
"The company's initial investigation has identified and rectified the likely source of the elevated carbon monoxide level. However, the company is not releasing additional details until the investigation is fully complete," Berry said in a statement.
Berry acquired the Morgantown location as part of its 2019 purchase of RPC Group plc. The facility is part of Berry's Consumer Packaging North America division, the company said.
