Toxic fumes clear Pilgrim's Pride plant

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Texas -

Several people treated for breathing problems overnight when toxic fumes filled an Arlington plant.

Late Thursday night, employees inside the Pilgrim's Pride plant in the 3500 block of Ave. F began coughing and choking.

The problem is thought to be related to some welders working in an area that somehow created acrid fumes.

A total of eight people were treated for breathing problems. Three of them went to the hospital.

Everyone is expected to recover.
