I would like to know if anyone has any information about on the job accidents at Pilgrims Pride that has resulted in serious injury or even Death. There seems to be a lot of talk about such happenings but no wants to talk publicly about it. I thought that maybe by posting it here, other people would at least follow along and give up whatever they know without having to be visible.

I have a friend who died out there a couple of Months ago. It was first thought to be a Heart Attack but the Official Cause is Undetermined. At the viewing several of his co workers were talking about a couple of other questionable accidents that involved death either on the job or at the Hospital afterwards.

It employs the most people so without it Live Oak and surrounding areas would be in worse shape.

The state of Florida will offer $500,000 of job-creation incentives to Pilgrimís Pride. The company must maintain at least 1,175 jobs in Live Oak for five years beginning at the end of 2011.

Well can anyone tell me if there is any type of Incident Report generated by Pilgrims Pride when an "accident" of this nature occurs? Is OSHA called and how do you find out anout retreiving personal property belonging to the deceased from a Locker there? So far the Family has gotten nothing but Bull from Pilrgrims Pride.

Unfortunately, a female employee was actually killed on the job out there just a few years ago. She was pulled into the gears of a processing machine and died at the scene.

Do you mind saying who the person is that died. I am friends with a supervisor and she knows all and I can ask her.

Concerned: call the OSHA office in Jacksonville for such info. Check with your union rep & Safety Manager for Pilgrim's history of OSHA audits & inspections and any formal replies to OSHA regarding any cited workplace safety standard compliance violations, employee injuries and related OSHA 'form 300' injuries/illnesses as are to be recorded and were reported to OSHA.

They have a locker clean out once a month and everyone is notified to clean out their lockers so they can spray them. If you happen to be on vacation or didn't clean your locker out by the day they tell you to they cut the lock and whatever is in there gets thrown out and it doesn't matter who you are. Nothing is put in a storage area it is thrown in a dumpster.

Sounds like Pilgrims treats employees the same as the growers
