Two dozen Amazon workers had to be hospitalized after an incident involving a robot and a cloud of bear repellant spray. It happened at an Amazon facility in Robbinsville, New Jersey, when an automated robot accidentally punctured a can of bear spray, releasing a cloud of concentrated Capsaicin, an ingredient used in pepper spray. 24 workers were taken to local hospitals for treatment while 30 more were treated at the scene. One of the workers remains in critical condition. Do you think Amazon treats its workers safely? Have you ever experienced bear repellant spray before?
