meat blenderClackamas, OR – Hugo Avalos-Chanon died a horrible death other day after the 41-=year-old cleaning contractor fell into a mechanical blender at a meat-processing plant.

Avalos-Chanon worked for DCS Sanitation Management Inc., which performs daily cleaning of equipment at Interstate Meat Distributors. Shortly before midnight Friday, emergency crews were called to the plant after Avalos-Chanon was found entangled in a mechanical blender that regulates the fat content of ground meat.

Another worker hit the emergency stop button, but it was way too late for Avalos Chanon. The poor guy was pronounced dead at the scene, but his body could not be removed from the machine until it was dismantled the following day.

Dr. Cliff Young, a deputy state medical examiner, said Avalos-Chanon died from “blunt-force injuries and chopping wounds.

Interstate Meat was cited in October after inspectors found machinery in the meat-grounding room were not properly locked down during cleaning, and could result in “unexpected start-up of the machine.”  But OSHA says it’s too early to tell if that’s connected to Avalos-Chanon’s death.

“It’s way too early to say,” said Oregon OSHA spokeswoman, Melanie Mesaros. “We’re just starting our investigation, which could take six months.”

Darrin Hoy, president of Interstate Meat Distributors, said company officials are cooperating fully with investigators, but Avalos-Chanon’s death was “extremely unfortunate” and difficult to discuss. Plant operations were not delayed, and they were back up and running on Monday.

    “plant operations were not delayed.” Of course not. Horrific tragedy yields to the consumption of beef.

    What a bad way to go. I saw the remains of two people that got sucked into an aircraft engine and it looked just like that meat in the pic but packed more tight.

  • kimbev69

    “not delayed” seriously umm i thought with a death on the property that it would customary to shut down the plant..esp since the guy was still in the machine til the next day .. ugh

  • http://www.facebook.com/mjensen91 Matthew Jensen

    So cited for unexpected startup, a contractor is cleaning. Why would the machine be on? Probably need to do some DNA testing of our meat in stores. Lol

    They had the weekend to clean him all out of the equipment…

  • Evan Oswald

    chopping wounds – teehee – classic. more seriously tho, how do i still eat ground beef yet assure myself of not eating any of this interstate meat distributors.

  • Evan Oswald

    i’d be like “what i aint comin in there on the wknd to clean jose outta the machine – go fuck yourself”
    .
    seriously tho, who had to clean him outta the machine? his co-workers? cops?

    They removed that piece of equipment from the plant, that’s why they were able to continue with production.

  • Buffettgirl

    I know this is SO wrong – but I find it amusing that the plant is on “Last Rd.”… Yup, that it was for poor Hugo… This confirms it, I spend way too much time here… ;-)

  • Buffettgirl

    They removed the machinery, with Hugo still inside to another facility and the cleaning process happened there. The co-workers and plant workers were not involved in that aspect of the clean up.

  • Andyman

    Hope they threw out that batch of meat. EWWWWWWWWWWW

  • LoKi4778

    I imagine a forensics team would’ve had the honor of cleaning the machine, the question now is do they put the machine back into production after a thorough cleaning or scrap it… what does the money say?

  • Buffettgirl

    God I hope they scrap it! I believe I’ll be buying butcher store hamburger and ground pork from now on… just to play it safe, since i live exactly 15 miles away from this plant…

  • Buffettgirl

    I should have said that it went elsewhere AFTER the forensic team was done with it…

    If I were a betting person…….

  • newstarshipsmell

    They should auction it on eBay and turn over the proceeds to his family.

  • newstarshipsmell

    This is probably the least of the worries you should have about consuming ground beef.

    Greeeat Morbid! Nice pic and thanks for the “meat” visual! (Rolls eyes) It just so happens it’s Hamburger Helper night. Wonder how it would taste without the ground Chuck or turkey?… :-X

    Evan, my Hamburger Helper night (gag) will now be just Helper night…

    Can’t chance it being Hugo Helper night! :-XX

  • G.I.R.L.

    I thought my hamburger tasted a little… spicy.

  • Evan Oswald

    lmao @ hugo helper night!

  • Evan Oswald

    hey thanks buffettgal – good investigation work there! Closed bun – i mean casket – funeral i’m assuming…

  • Jessica Stewart

    Can’t do that. You wanna see crazed zombies eating each other? Shut down the supply of meat in America, we would instantly start eating Soylent Green. Especially if “long bacon” tastes anything like regular bacon, lol

  • Jessica Stewart

    Closed bun funeral? You made me laugh, now we’re both terrible people.

    So, the meat-packing company that hires illegal immigrants is also running an unsafe operation? Shocking! I am sure there is no correlation whatsoever.

    I hate these companies, if this was a rare event if would be one thing, but negligence has caused a lot of cleaners to get killed this way. Its a too common type of accident.
