Sure, it's October, but some people are already sick of pumpkin spice...literally. A pumpkin spice air freshener prompted the full evacuation of a Baltimore high school, as people complained of upset stomachs. A hazardous materials team descended on the third floor of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School last week, five people were taken to the hospital, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Firefighters ultimately found a pumpkin spice air freshener plugged into an outlet in a classroom.
Despite the incident, we don't expect a slowdown in sales of pumpkin spice lattes anytime soon.
