Up to 150 gallons of tahini sesame oil spills onto New Jersey road


Published in Weird News

(UPI) Emergency responders and public employees responded to a road in New Jersey when a truck spilled up to 150 gallons of tahini sesame oil into a roadway.

The Newton Fire Department said in a Facebook post that crews responded alongside the Newton Police Department, Sussex County HazMat and Newton Department of Public Works when a truck carrying tahini -- an oil condiment made from crushed sesame seeds -- leaked onto a roadway.

The post said firefighters kept the oil from flowing into a storm drain and contained the spill until a cleanup crew arrived on the scene.


Emergency responders estimated 140-150 gallons of tahini spilled from the truck.
