SOUTHGATE, Mich. (AP) -

The state says a packaging company in suburban Detroit is being fined nearly $250,000 for alleged worker safety violations.

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration on Thursday announced the fines for AJM Packaging's plant in Southgate.

MIOSHA's General Industry Safety and Health Division conducted two inspections and said that it found several violations, including nine considered serious. The state says the company has the opportunity to contest the citations and penalties.

AJM president Robert Epstein says the company is pursuing an appeal. He says the alleged violations "are way out of whack with the reality in the plant."

Epstein says a state inspector was very aggressive and the company is a "good public citizen."
