German Post Office Evacuated Because Of A Smelly Package
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. Six people went to the hospital and dozens were evacuated from a German post office over the weekend all because of a package containing a smelly fruit. Durians clearly are not common in the Bavarian town of Schweinfurt, which makes sense because they come from Southeast Asia. But don't worry - the four durians in this package did get to their intended recipient in Nuremberg, and around 60 German postal workers apparently learned about a spiky, pungent snack.
