A sugar factory in Orange is being closed down after a chemical spill caused a chemical contamination.
The Orange County Health Department says the facility at 8200 E. Franklin St. was contaminated with anhydrous ammonia and ethylene glycol, which were released into the environment.
Officials say the plant is one of four facilities that manufacture the chemical, a key ingredient in a sugar scrub that is used in a wide variety of products.
Orange County Health Director Steve Siegel said the facility had been closed due to the health risks posed by the spill.
Siegel says the Orange County Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on the matter soon.
