AFFTON, Mo. (KMOX) — Dozens of employees lined the edge of the parking lot of a food business in Affton this afternoon following a bomb threat made to police.

Around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday a male voice called 911 and whispered that a device was going to explode within an hour and a half at Kerry Inc. ( 8021 New Hampshire Ave.) according to St. Louis County Police spokesman Randy Vaughn.

The facility was evacuated and arson, fire, and bomb units were called in. As of 4:35 p.m. they were still on the scene.
