Ag Brief: Lawsuit alleges man was harmed at slaughterhouse
MINNEAPOLIS -- An Austin man is suing Hormel Foods Corp. and Quality Pork Proces-sors Inc., saying he was harmed because of a machine used to extract pig brains at a plant where several employees became sick with a mysterious neurological illness.
The lawsuit, filed in Mower County District Court in November, was first reported by the Post-Bulletin of Rochester this week. It seeks more than $50,000 in damages from each com-pany. -- Steve Karnowski, AgWeek
