According to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, 400 gallons of chemicals spilled last week at the Crowley Foods plant in LaFargeville.

No chemicals were released into the environment.

The DEC said it received a report of the spill on December 2.

The following materials leaked:

- Sodium Hydroxide
- Sulfuric Acid
- Nitric Acid

The DEC said two doublewall aboveground storage tanks leaked their chemical product into the secondary containment of their respective tank.

Plant personnel plan to pump product back into the original tanks, use the chemical up, then replace the tanks, the DEC said.
