At 8:30 a.m. on January 28, 2022, an employee was operating a KHS Kister wrapping machine when he stopped to retrieve Dasani water bottles. The bottles had fallen over the edge and were not detected by the machine sensing eye. As the employee attempted to retrieve the bottles he failed to stop the machine first. The employee caught his right arm in a machine pinch point and fractured his ulna, requiring hospitalization.
