The U.S. Department of Labor last week announced fines of $3.6 million against DeCoster Egg Farms of Turner, the third largest fine ever levied against a New England business. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration said that workers at DeCoster handled dead chickens without gloves, plant exits were locked and machinery had exposed wiring and switches. DeCoster was also ordered to pay $21,371 in back pay to workers after it was concluded that only those wokers earning overtime were charged rent. The violations are the latest in a series of problems the company has had with federal investigators. Details.
