Ink Spill in Boston

We have all had bad mornings and maybe spilled the coffee on the way out the door. Maybe the kids dropped their cereal bowl full of fruit loops. Neither of those messes compare to what happened outside of Boston last week.

A tractor-trailer carrying industrial printer cartridges rolled over leaking ink across a highway ramp in Peabody Massachusetts. No other vehicles were involved and the driver was unharmed in the crash. Approximately 16,000 pounds of ink cartridges were bound for an industrial printer in Maine. Workers are removing the ink by laying sand over the ink, which soaks it up, and then sweeping the sand away. The ink is non-flammable, but workers are wearing protective gear to avoid skin contact.

See, don’t you feel better already! Don’t you worry though; Clickinks.com uses Fed Ex and the USPS for our shipping. None of our high quality remanufactured ink cartridges were harmed in this incident.
