British police officers were rushed to the hospital after coming in contact with something brown and with an "unusual smell."
London's Metropolitan Police said a couple of officers in Enfield, North London were investigating reports of a heinous smell coming through a car window. The officers who came into contact with the substance were taken to the hospital.
The sauce was later identified as HP Sauce, a British brown sauce similar to Heinz A-1 steak sauce, an American brown sauce that has had fewer police health scares.
I used to enjoy HP Sauce with my fish and chips when I worked at Fionn MacCool's, an Irish pub in Fishers, Indiana. It's not my favorite, but I learned to enjoy it.
A police spokesman told the BBC: "Officers who came into contact with the substance were taken to hospital as a precautionary measure."
They were released with a side of chips and pint of lager.
