WHITEHALL, Wis. (AP) — A federal safety organization says an Illinois milk-related company has agreed to pay $535,000 in fines stemming from safety violations at a Wisconsin plant.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced the settlement Wednesday with Milk Specialties Co.

The company is based in Carpentersville, Ill. Its products include a protein supplements for dairy cows.

The fines stem from a 2008 inspection at the company's Whitehall plant. OSHA says the plant was cited for violations including combustible-dust hazards and having untrained employees working in potentially dangerous areas.

A message left at the company headquarters was not immediately returned Wednesday.

Whitehall is in western Wisconsin, about 50 miles south of Eau Claire.
