McALESTER, Okla. (AP) -- Four more employees at the McAlester Army Ammunition Plant have been found to have blood abnormalities.
Plant spokesman Mark Hughes says four work in a different building from other employees who were recently diagnosed with anemia.
Workers who tested positive for anemia in August and September worked in a building with open TNT where 2,000 pound bombs were produced.
Hughes says the four who became ill this week work in a building where TNT is melted out from artillery shells.
Production of the bomb line is closed while a new air scrubbing system is installed.
