Three TSA agents at LaGuardia Airport were injured early Wednesday morning by what officials are calling “hazardous materials.”

Around 6 a.m., the workers were exposed to the materials while inspecting a bag at a check-in area in Terminal B, ABC 7 reported.

The workers complained of eye irritation from what Port Authority officials later described as a food product.

According to Newsday, the workers were taken to Elmhurst Hospital.
