HAMMONTON, N.J. (AP) - It’s not clear what sickened about 30 employees at a produce repacking facility in southern New Jersey.

Police found workers complaining of nausea and dizziness at Buffalo Repack in Hammonton on Tuesday.

The employees were taken to a hospital.

Police Chief Robert Jones tells The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1lxm4fM ) the employees were handling grapes from Chile.

Jones says firefighters and technicians tested the air, but didn’t find anything.

The state Health Department and U.S. Agriculture Department are investigating.
