The gas was shut off to Fresca Foods natural

foods manufacturing facility in Louisville on Wednesday afternoon after

eight employees showed signs of elevated carbon monoxide levels.

An

executive with the company described the incident as "basically a

non-event" and said most of the employees had no symptoms. A technician

was working on the gas line, and he expected service to be restored by

Thursday.

Rich Sheehan, a spokesman for Boulder Community

Hospital, said a patient came into the emergency room around 1 p.m. with

nausea and headaches and tested positive for elevated carbon monoxide

levels.

The patient told hospital workers she had gone home sick

earlier in the day from Fresca Foods, and other workers there had

similar symptoms.

Sheehan said hospital workers believed the

situation potentially represented a public health hazard and called 911,

which he described as standard practice.

Louisville Fire

Protection District Chief Tim Parker said seven employees at the

facility tested positive for elevated carbon monoxide levels, and some

of them had symptoms such as nausea and headaches, but all of them were

conscious and talking. <span style="color:#000000">
