Caldwell Frozen Foods Maker Fined By EPA
The owners of a Caldwell frozen bread and cinnamon roll plant will pay the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency more than $84,000 for hazardous chemical violations.
The EPA announced Monday that Rhodes International stored large amounts of anhydrous ammonia at its Caldwell facility without proper reporting to public safety officials. The chemical is a toxic gas that can cause serious injury or death.
The EPA says the company failed to file forms with state and local emergency responders from 2006 to 2009. Kenny Farnsworth, President of the Salt Lake City-based company, had no comment.
