Cleaner injured at Llangefni food plant

A man is recovering in hospital after badly injuring his arm at a chicken processing plant in Llangefni.

The cleaner is believed to have become trapped in machinery at the 2 Sisters site on the town’s industrial estate at around 8.50pm on Monday night. He was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor with a serious arm injury.

A spokesperson for 2 Sisters said the company was investigating the incident but would not be able to comment further until it was complete.

Work at the Llangefni plant is continuing as usual after an undercover investigation found food safety guidelines were being breached at a sister site in West Bromwich. Production was suspended at the West Midlands plant last Friday in response to the findings by the Guardian and ITV News.
