Excerpt from the government of Ontario’s ‘Newsroom’
On December 30, 2020, three workers were operating a sausage mixer at JBS Foods’ Belleville plant. The workers were operating a mixer that makes sausages. As they were emptying the contents into two-wheeled bins at the outfeed to clean the mixer, one worker reached into the discharge hole, seriously injuring themselves. JBS Foods Ontario Inc. failed to ensure the machine had a guard or other device to prevent access to the pinch points as prescribed.
