A worker has died in an accident involving an industrial mixer at a Houston food company.

Houston police say the worker killed in the accident at a Wonton Food Inc. facility has been identified as 26-year-old Elmer Barrera.

Investigators say the Barrera had been operating an industrial dough mixer when another worker discovered his body Sunday afternoon in the machine.

An autopsy revealed he died from multiple blunt force injuries. Houston police do not suspect foul play.

A message left with Wonton Food Inc. was not immediately returned Monday.
