Investigators were examining evidence and interviewing witnesses in the Friday death of cleaning contractor Hugo Avalos-Chanon, 41, at Interstate Meat distributors, The (Portland) Oregonian reported Tuesday.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspectors had cited the company in October after finding machinery in the meat-grinding area of the facility was not properly locked down during cleaning, noting an "unexpected start-up of the machine" could cause injuries.
Sheriffs and paramedics were called to the plant late Friday after Avalos-Chanon was found entangled in a blender that regulates the fat content of ground meat. Firefighters returned Saturday to dismantle the machinery and extricate Avalos-Chanon's body, the newspaper said.
Police said no foul play was suspected.
