“They have significant outbreaks among their employees, [and] we were not notified as we are required to be notified when they had three cases, “said LA Ferrar, LA County̵7;s director of public health, on Monday, according to KTLA. “Our inspector asked them to make some adjustments to really improve their infection control protocols at all three locations.”
Golden State Foods is one of McDonald’s largest suppliers.
Foods employee Jose Roberto Alvarez, 67, died in July after signing a coronavirus contract, and his family said the company did not protect him enough, KTLA reported.
“He came home and told my mom that someone else got it, then someone else got it. There was a growl between the devices, “said his daughter Alisha Alvarez, according to KTLA. “The fact that his work wasn’t made public by other people was sick and getting in his way is really unbelievable. “
