The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (or OSHA) fined Bright Oaks Meat, Incorporated for violations after an employee's hand was pulled into the blades of a tenderizing machine.  

A female employee had to get 60 stitches on her right hand after the August incident. The meat tenderizer she was using had no safety guard. Darla Harris is co-owner of Bright Oaks Meat. She says the guard on this particular machine was made of plastic and constantly broke.
