There goes that picric again


Oops, they did it again. Another batch of the sometimes helpful but potentially dangerous chemical compound known as picric acid ended up causing a scare on Depot Road in Hayward today. You may remember this also happened late last month, involving the same company. It’s apparently not just Hayward. It happened this week in Virginia, too.

So what is picric acid? We’ll refer to Wikipedia and the universities on that one.
