OSHA Investigating Alleged Chemical Exposure in Mountaire Farms Plant


At the instigation of the North Carolina Justice Center, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will investigate reports that workers at the Lumber Bridge, NC. plant were exposed to acrid fumes in the vicinity of deboning lines on an unspecified date.  The activist organization maintains that workers complained of sore throats, coughs and other non-specific ailments.


Mountaire in a company statement averred that there were no changes in chemicals or procedures used in the facility and that ‘no formal complaints’ were received from employees. The Company "welcomed the OSHA visit" and will respond appropriately to the report to be produced by the Agency.
