HARBESON, Del. (AP) - Federal inspectors have accused poultry producer Allen Harim Foods of using a First Aid station at its Harbeson processing facility to avoid reporting worker injuries.

According to the News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/1EBQ9I8 ), the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced Wednesday that Harim provides medical care to its workers through a First Aid station staffed by three emergency medical technicians, none of whom are licensed in Delaware.

In a letter sent to Harim dated Aug. 7, the inspectors say the emergency personnel are supervised by a corporate safety officer who has no medical training.

A representative for the Seaford-based company was not immediately available for comment.

The letter comes after inspectors cited Harim for nine safety violations at the plant in June. The company is appealing those citations.
