Fire at the Bonduelle plant in Tecumseh

MONTREAL, July 18, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Bonduelle Canada confirms that a fire was reported in its Ontario Tecumseh plant around 2:00 am last night. There are no casualties registered.

Upon arrival on the site, Bonduelle Canada executives are schedule to meet with employees, security agencies and government authorities. The company fully cooperates with the inquiry conducted by local authorities.

Even though the cause of the incident has not been confirmed at this time, it seems that an electrical problem could be responsible. The nature and the magnitude of the damages remain to be determined. Once this evaluation is completed, Bonduelle will decide on the continuation of its activities.

It is too early to determine how and when the company will continue production. Bonduelle will take all necessary measures to minimize the impact of this tragedy on its employees and customers.

The plant isn't named Tecumseh. The plant is in Tecumseh.

Who needs the frozen vegetable plant?

Besides, the whole Jolly Green Giant thing is a myth. He's nothing but a grumpy overgrown elf.
