Officials investigate death of employee

A Fall River man died early yesterday morning in an industrial accident at the Tribe Mediterranean Foods plant in Taunton. Police responded to the hummus manufacturing plant on Prince Henry Drive around 1 a.m. Tribe employee Daniel Callazo, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene, said Gregg Miliote, spokesman for the Bristol district attorney. The death appears to be an accident, Miliote said, but is under investigation by Taunton police, State Police, and the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Tribe said it is working closely with OSHA and local officials to determine what happened. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the individual’s family at this difficult time,’’ the statement said.
