BURLEY, Idaho (AP) - A south-central Idaho business that makes a product for pet food has pleaded not guilty to producing smells that violate its permits.

The Times-News reports (https://bit.ly/1KqcYRU) in a story on Wednesday that Idaho Dehydration and Processing LLC denied two misdemeanor counts of failure to conform to permitted use requirements and two misdemeanor charges for non-permitted use.

Neighbors of the company’s vegetable-dehydrating plant in southwest Burley have complained for years to the city about bad smells coming from the plant.

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality reports that its workers have documented odors during visits.

A resident who filed a complaint described the smell as “a moldy, rotten, burnt potato odor.”

A company spokesman didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Wednesday.
