Commercial food grinders are used extensively in the food industry to break down food into smaller pieces for processing. The machines use rotating blades to cut and chop the food, which then enters into a cylindrical chamber where it is ground.
There are a few dangers associated with using commercial food grinders. Injuries can occur when the operator is not properly wearing safety gear, or if the machine becomes overloaded.
A study performed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that the most common injuries associated with food grinding were cuts and abrasions. Workers who sustained these injuries often suffered from minor trauma, such as bruising and lacerations. In some cases, these injuries resulted in more serious trauma such as amputations and crushing injuries.
If you have been injured by a commercial food grinder, it is important to contact an experienced attorney. Commercial food grinders are designed to shred and chop large quantities of food, and they can pose a serious danger if they are not used properly. An experienced attorney will be able to review your case and determine whether you have a valid claim against the manufacturer or other party responsible for your injuries.
