The body of a 40-year-old woman was found this morning in a machine at a food processing plant in City of Industry, officials said.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives arrived about 8 a.m. at Golden State Foods, located at 640 6th Ave., Sgt. Shaun McCarthy said.

“It doesn’t appear to be criminal,” he said.

No other information was given about the woman, who was an employee.

Golden State Foods is headquartered in Irvine and has distribution centers across the United States. According to its website, the company is a major supplier for the McDonald's fast food chain and developed the Big Mac sauce in the 1960s.
