Tor Rey USA Inc., et al., ultimately determined that the accident was not the fault of Texas-based Tor Rey USA, which manufactured the meat grinder. A key point in Tor Rey’s favor was that a protective guard that would likely have prevented the accident had been removed by workers who wanted to clean the machine.
