PERRY, Iowa (AP) — Officials say four workers have been injured in an accident at a Tyson Fresh Meats plant in the central Iowa town of Perry.

The accident occurred around 11:40 a.m. Monday at the plant just northwest of Des Moines.

Two of the workers were flown to the burn center at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. The two other workers were treated at the plant. None of their names have been released.
