On December 7, 2010, Employee #1, a machine operator, was working with cellophane substrates used in manufacturing bags for pasta. He was operating a Faustel Laminator when the cellophane web broke. The machine continued to put out glue, which went all over the rollers. Leaving the machine running, Employee #1 went under the machine to clean the rollers with a rag. His arms became caught in the rollers and were pulled in past his forearms. After he was extracted from the machine, Employee #1 was taken to UCI Medical Center, where he was hospitalized for four days for treatment.
