Posted on December 12, 2011 by


The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. for 23 violations at its Milwaukee production plant. The agency is proposing fines of $146,400. OSHA said Cargill failed to develop “normal operating procedures” for starting ammonia refrigeration systems and conduct equipment inspections and testing at required times, among other things. Cargill said there were no employee injuries, ammonia releases, or food safety issues associated with the alleged violations. A Cargill spokesman said the alleged violations center primarily on documentation. He said the company has an emergency response plan in place to address ammonia releases.
