OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Federal safety regulators say they've proposed more than $61,000 in fines against an Omaha beef processor for several violations.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited Nebraska Beef Ltd. with eight safety violations, including one the agency said was a repeat of a violation. OSHA says Nebraska Beef has been inspected 12 times since 1998, resulting in several citations. The company can pay the proposed penalties and comply, request an informal conference with OSHA's area director or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. A company representative didn't immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press.
