Two workers fell into a tank of waist-deep chocolate at the Mars Wrigley factory in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania plant on June 9.
Crews had to cut a hole in the tank to get the workers because they were unable to directly lift them out, CNN Reports.
While both workers were transported to the hospital, first responders said there were no injuries.
In a statement to Candy Industry, Mars said the workers were both external contractors and that they were taken offsite for further evaluation.
“We’re extremely grateful for the quick work of the first responders,” the company added.
Images of the factory taken in 2017 via Google Street View shows the Mars logo on the plant, as well as the company’s Dove brand logo.
Lancaster Online reports that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the incident, and that process that could take up to six months.
News of the accident quickly spread on Twitter Thursday night, as people online said it seemed like a real-life Willy Wonka moment. References to the movie also made “Augustus Gloop" trend. Gloop famously falls into a chocolate river in the 1971 film.
