Students and teachers at a Baltimore school became alarmed last week after noticing an unusual smell that “appeared to be getting stronger.”

People started to say they were having trouble breathing, and the school’s principal called for the building to be evacuated. The fire department arrived and summoned a Hazmat team to check for hazardous materials. What was the offending smell coming from? An air freshener that was scented with pumpkin spice.

Keith shared this wonderful fall-themed headline on today’s show.

"Was it laced with cyanide or something, or was it just pumpkin spice?" Kal wondered.

"We've hit critical mass with pumpkin spice," Doc explained. "We can no longer sustain that amount of pumpkin spice flavor and smell."
