Dairy Queen has been the target of a federal investigation into its role in the dairy industry.
The investigation comes amid a recent report by the USDA that linked the company to over 1,000 workers at its facilities in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana who have died.
The report found that the company had over 5,000 employees in the U.S. at the time of the outbreak, but that it employed only 1,300 people.
The USDA report noted that the agency was also able to find that dairy products were being shipped from the company’s facilities in Illinois and Wisconsin.
As part of the investigation, the USDA is looking into the company for the death of one employee in Wisconsin.
A statement released by the company Monday said the investigation found “the company’s policies and procedures did not meet USDA guidelines for handling the outbreak.”
A spokesperson for the Department of Justice said the agency is also looking into whether there was a federal law that allowed the company, or other dairy products producers, to avoid paying overtime to employees.
In a statement released Monday, the Dairy Queen Company said it “acknowledged” the allegations, adding that it “will vigorously defend ourselves against this investigation and is cooperating fully with the Department’s investigation.”
Dairy Queen also said it was “reviewing the USDA’s report and will respond in the strongest terms.”
The company added that the “safety and well-being of all employees are our top priorities and this is our commitment to our employees and our communities.”
The investigation is part of a broader review of the safety of the U,S.
dairy industry, according to a statement from the Department.
It is also the latest salvo in a growing debate about the nation’s dairy industry as consumers are increasingly demanding better safety standards.
A recent report found the U.,S.
has the third-highest rate of dairy farm deaths in the world.
The U.s. has one of the highest milk prices in the industrialized world, with a median price of $3.39 per gallon.
