- The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the death in NJ of a mill builder at a Canadian company that produces fruit and vegetable juices
Dale R. Devilli, a 63-year-old employee, was found dead at a New Jersey food processing plant, police said.
Devilli’s body was discovered in the machine at the “Lassonde Pappas” plant in Cumberland County around 8 a.m. Monday, reported yesterday the radio station NJ 101.5 FM.
Authorities were called to the plant following reports of a workplace accident and made the grim discovery. It was not immediately clear what kind of accident caused the tragedy. Devilli’s death is not considered suspicious, but police said the investigation was ongoing.
“Early Monday morning, an accident occurred on our premises causing a fatal injury to one of our employees,” said a Lassonde Pappas spokesman. “We are devastated by the loss of our friend and colleague and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time,” the plant spokesperson continued.
The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is also investigating the death of Devilli, who had worked as a mill builder at the Canadian company that produces fruit and vegetable juices, according to an online obituary.
In July, an Amazon employee died in a New Jersey warehouse during the “Prime Day” rush, the Department of Labor (DOL) reported.
