Over the last few days I have received a number of calls and e-mails regarding the odour that we're currently experiencing.
Bonduelle has advised the Town of Tecumseh of what it is. The plant is processing dry beans. They're taking red kidney beans, chick peas, etc., blanching them through a continuous blanching process, and then freezing them.
They began the process on Saturday, December 13th and concluded their dry bean production today. You're smelling the blanching/cooking of the dry beans during the process. The production of dry/frozen beans occurs twice annually, in December and June. Usually, each period last about 7 - 8 days.
Please do let me know if you have any comments on this, either here or by calling me at 226-773-1910.
