A milk spill at an Indiana food processing plant had the unexpected consequence of turning an entire creek white.

Tipton County Emergency Management posted photos to Facebook showing Cicero Creek running white last week after about 300 gallons of milk spilled from the Park 100 Foods plant.

The post said agencies including the Tipton Fire Department, Tipton Police Department, Tipton County Sheriff's Office, Tipton Wastewater and Utilities and various other area fire departments sent crews to help with the cleanup.

About 14,000 gallons of a milk and water mixture were removed from the creek to help it return to its usual color.
