Firefighters Respond to Ammonia Leak at Foster Farms

At about 2:51 pm Saturday afternoon, the Turlock Fire Department was dispatched to a reported hazardous materials incident at Foster Farms Turkey Division Plant 2, 711 West F Street, Turlock.

When firefighters arrived on scene, they discovered an ammonia leak from a gauge in a compressor room.

All employees at the plant were immediately evacuated and accounted for.

The Modesto Fire Department responded with a hazardous materials team which made entry into the compressor room and stopped the leak by securing five valves that fed the compressor.

American Medical Response also responded to provide firefighter and patient care, while the Turlock Police Department responded to provide traffic control.

No injuries were reported.

The investigation remains on-going. Anyone with information that could assist in the investigation is encouraged to call Stanislaus County Environmental Resources at 209-525-6700.
