Phantom BenGay reported in Peabody

The Salem News reports a Peabody woman called 911 to report an intruder in her home because she was smelling BenGay. But a responding officer "reported there was no BenGay in the building and all appeared to be in order."

H/t Liz.

She should have gone with "Do you have Prince Albert in the Can" instead.

She also could have gone with "is your refrigerator running?" :-)

I always smell really bizarre burning metal and plastic-like odors just before a seizure that are vaguely familiar but also really difficult to describe.

She may be seriously ill.

I actually had to go to a doctor for that- was experiencing regular inexplicable smell of smoke due to frequent sinus infections a few years ago

So is the Peabody Department of Health going do do a follow-up visit with her or is the town going wait for a crisis?
