Tuberculosis Scandal at Tyson

If there were ever a boycott looking for a place to happen here it is and I think you will agree when you see what happens when folks come in to our country without the normal health exams, etc. People who have not passed standard health examinations are preparing the foods that will end up on your table! It's not the first case. And this is just part of the story in the game of corporate "musical chairs" with illegal immigrants and otherwise that is going on behind the scenes.

In another time the government and the media would be all over this thing and for good reason but it's just another example of huge business,their power and influence to keep it quiet. Dollars, elections and power! Everyone in America should be advised what these huge corporations are getting away with! And not one mention of the FDA!

Health officials educate Tyson staff

Health officials presented eight hour-long educational talks to Tyson Fresh Meats management and management support staffs at the plant Thursday, in response to questions about the death on Jan. 4 of a 20-year-old Tyson worker.

The Somali man had come to the plant’s health center for treatment of what was believed to have been a work-related injury. He was taken by ambulance to Newman Regional Health, where he died. Preliminary results of an autopsy were received Wednesday afternoon and in a news release Thursday morning, health and plant officials announced jointly that the man had active tuberculosis, which contributed to his death.

The coroner’s final report is not yet available.

A Tyson worker who died Jan. 4 with an active case of tuberculosis had tested positive earlier for a latent TB infection, according to a state health official.

Information from a preliminary autopsy report, released publicly on Thursday, stated that active tuberculosis was a related factor in the death of the 20-year-old man, who originally was reported to have been in an industrial accident at the Emporia plant. The final autopsy report is not expected for six to eight weeks.

“The fact of the matter is that this is the first Somali case of (active) TB in Lyon County,” said Phil Griffin, director of the Kansas Tuberculosis Prevention and Control Program, Bureau of Epidemiology and Disease Prevention of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Griffin said that the man, whom officials have not yet identified, was tested earlier and found to have a latent TB infection.

Because of health privacy laws, Griffin said he could not talk about the specifics of the deceased man’s care management before his death.

Tyson worker had TB

A coroner’s report says that an active case of tuberculosis was a factor in the death of a Tyson worker on Jan. 4 at the Emporia plant.

According to information this morning from the Lyon County Health Department, the department and Tyson Foods are taking precautionary measures in the case, which remains under investigation. The name of the worker, a 20-year-old man, has not been released.

Both the health department and local plant manager Mike Fiehler said in a news release that TB is not a food safety concern and is not transmitted by food.

The man’s death initially was announced as a work-related accident. The first information from Tyson stated that the man, a production worker, had walked into the plant’s Health Services Department about 5:30 p.m. Jan. 4 and reported being injured while helping prepare an animal for slaughter. He was taken by ambulance to Newman Regional Health, where he died.

“It was initially believed he was involved in a workplace accident,” a health department news release stated. “While the cause of death remains under investigation, the coroner reports the worker had an active case of TB when he died and that the disease was related to his death.”

Tyson spokesman Gary Mickelson said in a telephone interview this morning that additional details related to the death are not yet available.

“I don’t know how long it will be before we get the final coroner’s report,” Mickelson said.

The Lyon County Health Department has started an investigation, in coordination with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and with the cooperation of Tyson Foods.
