2 Arkansas Businesses Cited for Alleged Violations

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Federal officials report dozens of potential workplace safety violations in separate investigations at two Arkansas businesses.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration reports 14 violations at Little Rock-based Good Old Days Foods Inc., which specializes in unbaked frozen bread and pastry products.

The agency says workers were exposed to amputation and electric shock hazards, and proposed a $47,600 fine.

OSHA reports 14 similar violations at AGE Industries Ltd., a design and packaging manufacturer in Conway — and is proposing nearly $79,000 in fines.

The voicemail of a plant manager at AGE was full and could not receive new messages. An employee at Good Old Days Foods left a reporter waiting on the phone for at least 10 minutes without picking back up.
