Sep 7, 2016

A meat processing plant in southeast Alabama has been fined more than $70,000 following an investigation after a worker lost his fingertip in an accident.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration says the Keystone Foods plant in Bakerhill, Alabama, is facing about $76,700 in proposed penalties following an investigation. The agency began looking into the plant after a 65-year-old employee lost the tip of his index finger while cleaning an overhead saw blade in early March.
