On March 16, 2004, Employee #1 was working at a bagging machine. The bags had been jamming in the machine throughout the shift. He reached up into the machine and attempted to un-jam it by pulling bags down off the plates, which melt the plastic bags closed and cuts them apart. While doing this, the machine activated and closed shut on his left hand. He was hospitalized with an amputation to his left first finger and severe burns to the left hand.
