At 10:00 a.m. on April 21, 2017, an employee was operating a KS cake dryer when a jam occurred. As the employee opened the machine's panel door, located at the dryer discharge, with the machine still running, he used a pair of pliers to cle ar the jam. However, the employee's left index finger became caught between the pliers and the machine blades, resulting in its tip being amputated.
