SD Meatpacking Plant To Pay Federal Fine

SD Meatpacking Plant To Pay Federal Fine
SIOUX FALLS, SD - John Morrell & Co. has agreed pay a $206,000 fine to the federal government and improve how it manages the ammonia refrigeration system at its meatpacking plant in Sioux Falls.

The settlement agreement obligates the company to correct violations uncovered during a federal inspection. The 2009 inspection and a follow-up visit found multiple violations of federal laws governing the handling of large quantities of toxic chemicals.

The company says it's committed to operating a safe refrigeration system.

John Morrell recently was fined $44,000 by the state of South Dakota for polluting the Big Sioux River with ammonia.

In 2004, Morrell was fined more than $18,000 after a corroded pipe ruptured and sent dozens of workers to the hospital.

Morrell didn't admit liability in either settlement.
