At 9:30 p.m. on April 10, 2019, Employee # 1 was cleaning the hopper area before the end of his work shift. The plastic expanding hose, from the hopper bottom into the pressure valve, came loose and sprayed anti-cake around the area. Employee # 1 re-attached the hose. As he was doing that, he used his finger to remove anti-cake from the top of the valve. The t-valve inside the housing closed, and pinched the tip of Employee 1's left middle finger. He suffered an amputation to the tip of left middle finger. He was not hospitalized.
