As we told you last night, the NYPD was investigating after three uniformed offices were sent to the hospital after drinking milkshakes from Shake Shack thought to contain bleach:

But at 4:02 a.m. this morning, NYPD Chief of Detective Rodney Harrison tweeted that the investigation found “no criminality” by Shake Shack’s employees:
After a thorough investigation by the NYPD’s Manhattan South investigators, it has been determined that there was no criminality by shake shack’s employees.

Shake Shack is still investigating what happened:
Our team is working hard to get the full picture. In the meantime, we’re relieved to hear the officers are all okay. https://t.co/rjJYFSYjZc

You know, we still have questions about all of this:
