NEW HOPE, Minn. (WCCO) – Some problems at a manufacturing company in New Hope had employees complaining of irritated eyes and throats.

The symptoms were reported at about 1 a.m. Friday at Minneapolis Die Casting on Boone Avenue.

Two workers were moving metal shavings into the back of a trailer, when a reaction gave off an ammonia-like smell.

The two workers refused medical treatment.

No one else was affected.
