Egg Gluten

On June 23, 2009, in Topeka, Kansas, two piles of a yellow substance were spotted on the roadway. The substance was at first unidentified, which triggered a haz-mat scare that blocked the highway entrance for several hours.

Fire department haz-mat crews were dispatched to take samples. Eventually it turned out to be egg gluten, which is used as a feed additive. The truck that spilled it was not identified. Once crews knew what the substance was, it was cleaned up and the road reopened.
