Seven workers were killed Sunday at a Mexico City brewery that manufactures beer for the Corona label, a company spokesman said.

The accident occurred while the workers were cleaning a tank, according to the New York Post. A spokesman for Grupo Modelo, the company that makes Corona, said an investigation has begun and that the company will support family members of the victims.

No details of the incident have been released. It is unknown whether the accident would impact the company’s production levels.

Modelo’s Mexico City plant began operations in 1925, and produces roughly 16 percent of the company’s brew, the Post reported.
