Man threatens strike against petfood company

A man in Vernon Township, Pa., said he will enter a soundproof shed and go on a hunger strike until noise from nearby  Dad's Products Co.  factory - a petfood maker - is lowered, according to a story from the  Eerie Times-News .

Harry Davies, a 62-year-old retiree, cites the recently expanded factory as the source of the noise, which he said can be heard throughout both day and nighttime hours.

"We will continue to take a measured approach at our Mill Street factory to ensure we remain in compliance with local ordinances and address the needs of our neighbors," said Paul Johnson, operations director at Dad's, in a statement.

According to the story, the township has tested decibel levels from the factory, and they fall below ordinance-defined limits.
