These aren't the crystal-blue waters outside a Caribbean resort - this is an Indiana creek after an industrial spill.

Discount Labels produces pressure-sensitive labels out of a 200,000 sq ft facility in New Albany, Indiana and has acknowledged they are the source of the dye spill. The blue dye was rinsed out of equipment from the printing company, but it wasn't clear whether the spill was intentional or the result of improper handling.

Read more at the News and Tribune and contact Discount Labels for wholesale prices on safety and hazardous chemical labels to remind your employees to properly dispose of industrial dyes.
