BEAVER DAM, WI (WTAQ) - Federal workplace safety officials have recommended $230,000 in fines for a Beaver Dam food plant cited for safety violations.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Richelieu Foods is a repeat violator, after the same facility was cited in 2009.
OSHA said Richelieu put employees’ safety at risk by allowing a number of safety hazards and health violations to persist.
The company is based in Randolph Massachusetts, and its Beaver Dam plant has about 410 workers who make food items like frozen pizza, salad dressings, and sauces.
The company has not commented on the new citations.
