Service Company Injunction


Judge M Gerrard of the U.S. District Court of Nebraska has issued an injunction against Packers Sanitation Services Inc. at the request of the Department of Justice. The Company provides cleaning services for 700 plants using 17,000 workers.


The action relates to allegations that the company is employing minors to provide decontamination and cleaning services for plants operated by JBS USA., Tyson Foods and other processors. The injunction also requires Packers Sanitation Services to cooperate with the Federal investigation and illegal hiring. Evidence was presented of false social security numbers, altered records and other evidence of fraud relating to a preliminary review of 40 plants dating from August.


Federal investigators ascertained that approximately 30 minors between the ages of 13 and 18 were cleaning equipment in a Grand Island, NE plant and allegedly one employee suffered injuries from contact with corrosive compounds.
