A secret new eggnog mix may have triggered an explosion at a pharmaceutical plant that caused ‘millions of dollars worth of damage’.

The blast on Saturday at the Pharmachem Laboratories in Totowo, New Jersey, injured two workers who were reportedly in the middle of preparing a new eggnog recipe, according to Fire Marshal Allen Del Vecchio.

‘People could have been killed — normal operation, you’d have had five, ten people working in there — that’s how violent the explosion was,’ Del Vecchio told The Star-Ledger.

He added: ‘The damage was in the millions.’

The explosion blew off the rear of the three-storey plant and left glass scattered on the ground.

Pharmachem, which makes and supplies ingredients for foods and beverages, has yet to comment on the incident.
