Safety Issues Cited at Lexington Meat Byproducts Plant

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) — Federal regulators say they're proposing $91,300 in fines for safety violations at a meat byproducts plant in the south-central Nebraska city of Lexington.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration said in a news release Tuesday that there are six violations, including one repeat violation, at the Darling International plant. OSHA says the Darling plant operates as Dar Pro in Lexington.

OSHA says the company recycles used restaurant cooking oil and byproducts from the beef, pork and poultry processing industries into usable products.

A call to the Dar Pro plant was referred to Darling's headquarters in Irving, Texas. A company spokeswoman didn't immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press.
