    MA - Man dies after arm caught in hummus grinder

    Man dies in horrific accident after getting stuck in food grinder at hummus plant (Daily Mail)
    A food factory worker died Friday after his arm became caught in a grinder.

    Daniel Callazo, 28, was working at hummus manufacturer Tribe Mediterranean in [Taunton] Massachusetts when police were called in just after 1am, pronouncing him dead at the scene.
    'The only information I really have is that he became stuck in a rather large machine which some people call an auger and others call it a grinder,' Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the Bristol County District Attorney's office said.

    'It appears to have been a tragic accident. ... It was part of his duties to clean and sanitize the machinery for obvious health code and safety reasons. But the exact circumstances of that will be part of the investigation.'
