According to the Associated Press, federal labor officials have issued ten safety citations at a Tyson Foods Inc. plant in Jefferson, Wis. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said the citations resulted from an inspection conducted in October. The agency says nine of the citations resulted from violations that could lead to death or serious injury. Those violations included a lack of fall protection, shortcomings in the plant''s respiratory program and a lack of maintenance on industrial trucks. Tyson faces up to $45,000 in penalties. The company has 15 days to respond. Company spokesman Gary Mickelson says in a statement the company hasn''t had a chance to analyze the citations but they don''t involve any actual injuries or illnesses.
