Holy hoagies! Fear of a cold cut catastrophe prompted the evacuation of the Dietz & Watson plant in Bridesburg last night. Workers at the deli meats maker’s facility on Tacony Street reported a strong odor of ammonia wafting through the facility shortly before 9 p.m., Action News reports. After all the workers exited, fire and hazmat teams called to the scene traced the noxious fumes to a leak that was contained to one room. Once the situation was under control, salami stuffing, and pimento loaf packing resumed. [Action News]
