At approximately10:30 a.m. on September, 3, 2013, Employee #1, a General Laborer, was assigned a task of slicing lamb lungs for dog food. The employee was cutting lamb lungs on a Nantsune meat slicer (Model Number NFC 385, Serial Number 201105002). The lamb lungs became jammed in the meat slicer and the employee attempted to clean the meat slicer by removing a jammed portion of lamb lung, with his finger without the use of any extension tools, and without stopping the machine. Employee #1's finger came in contact with the point of operation of the meat slicer blade and was amputated. The employee was transported to Reliance Medical and then to Western Hand Center, where he was treated for the amputation of his right hand finger. Employee #1 was later released.
