Seneca Foods fined, faulted for major safety violation in Minnesota cannery worker's death

Seneca Foods has been slapped with a flagrant work safety violation in connection with the October death of a Minnesota cannery worker.

Jose Luis Alvarado, who worked at Seneca Foods' plant in Montgomery, died after a stack of corncob-filled boxes collapsed and crushed him.

The Minnesota Occupational Safety Administration cited Seneca for a "willful" safety violation in late March and fined the company $156,259, the maximum allowed.
