A chemical mixture mistake at MillerCoors Brewery in Albany Friday but there were no injuries or spills.

Albany Firefighters were called to the plant on Cordele Road just after 11:30 after workers accidentally mixed two chemicals in a container.

Firefighters say MillerCoors employees off-gassed the container, and then off loaded the chemicals into another tank for disposal.

Firefighters say MillerCoors officials never told them what the chemicals were. Plant officials said they would issue a statement, but we have not received it yet.
