Police: Man sucked into sausage seasoning machine

Police said a cleaning man was taken to a hospital after being sucked into a machine at a sausage-making company in Danvers. The accident happened Thursday night as the man was cleaning the vacuum-type machine that is used to season the meat at DiLigui Sausage Co. Police said the man’s head and shoulders became stuck in the machine after it somehow activated while being cleaned.

Lt. Carole Germano told The Salem News that the man — whose name was not released — was freed from the machine and showed no obvious sign of trauma, but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the mishap.

    Oh Dunderbeck oh Dundebeck how could you be so mean
    For ever inventing the sausage meat machine,
    For dogs and cats and long tailed rats will never more be seen’
    For they’ll all be ground to sausage meat in Dunderbeck’s machine.

    One day the ole machine, it quite refused to go,
    And Dunderbeck he crawled inside the reason for to know
    His wife, she had a nightmare, was walkin’in her sleep
    She gave the crank and awful yank
    And Dunderbeck was meat!
