The incident took place at Simply Natural Foods in Commack, Long Island.
The worker, identified as a 37-year-old man, was said to have suffered a minor injury in his arm after falling into the industrial mixing tank, according to News 12 Long Island.
“We arrived to find a fairly young man lying on the ground, covered in very thick chocolate,” paramedic Tom Hughes told the outlet.
Another responder said the 37-year-old was covered “head-to-toe.”
The man was transported to a hospital for treatment of his injury. Fortunately, he also saw the humor in the situation, as paramedics who arrived to assist him told News 12 he was joking about it.
