The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration found 23 violations at an Illinois, USA, petfood manufacturer, the Chicago Tribune reported.
According to OSHA, petfood company All-Feed Processing and Packaging Inc. exposed its workers to high levels of dust and excessive noise, and used trucks powered by liquid propane in areas where combustible dust was present. The company's petfood production plant is located in Galva, Illinois, USA.
The agency proposed a fine of US$758,450. The company has not commented on the matter, according to the report, and OHSA says the company has 15 days to respond to its accusations.
