Hearthside Food Solutions Facing OSHA Fine

11/28/18 – 5:06 A.M.

Hearthside Food Solutions in McComb is facing a workplace safety fine. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is proposing a more than $71,000 fine for allegedly exposing workers to amputation hazards. An October inspection found a machine didn’t have proper guarding, potentially exposing workers to injury.

The inspection also says the company did not make sure a chain and sprocket had guards to protect employees from injury by moving parts.

Hearthside has until mid-December to respond to the accusations.
