Dippin' Dots Statement Regarding Dry Ice Incident
Posted August 1, 2018
We are deeply saddened by the tragedy that occurred in Tacoma, WA. This horrific accident has shaken our entire business family and our thoughts are with our longtime franchisees and their employee.
Dry ice forms carbon dioxide gas, which displaces oxygen. This is particularly dangerous when dry ice is placed in an enclosed space, with lack of airflow. We take dry ice handling precautions and safety procedures very seriously, and this incident is a painful reminder for all of us who handle dry ice of the inherent dangers of working with the product.
