International Nutrition will contest citations and proposed penalties issued for the collapse of their plant in January, leaving several injured and two dead.

International Nutrition has notified OSHA of the company's intentions. The case now will go to an administrative law judge for a hearing and to the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. Their decisions may be appealed to a federal appeals court.

Federal safety investigators say overloaded storage bins with limestone caused the building collapse on Jan. 20. Last week, OSHA cited International Nutrition for 13 violations of safety and health rules and proposed nearly $121,000 in penalties.
