Twenty-four Amazon workers have been hospitalised after a bear mist can was punctured during a room in New Jersey in a US on Wednesday.

One of those hospitalised is in a vicious condition. Another 30 people were treated by puncture services during a scene.

It is not transparent what caused a collision though Amazon is investigating.

Workers evacuated a third building of a warehouse’s south opening during a occurrence on Wednesday morning.

Employees gifted respirating problems, and serious in their throat and eyes, internal officials said.

John Nalbone, a orator for Robinsville Township, told a BBC there was no hazard to residents in a area and that smoke were cramped to within a building.

Operations during a 1.3m sq ft trickery – that employs some-more than 3,000 people – have given resumed as normal, Mr Nalbone added.

“The reserve of a employees is always a tip priority and a full review is already underway,” pronounced Rachael Lighty, a mouthpiece for Amazon.

According to a Get Bear Smart Society, a non-lethal bear repellant causes “a scarcely total, nonetheless temporary, detriment of steer and serious limitation of breathing” in bears and humans.
