OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- A livestock feed company says it will contest citations and proposed penalties issued for the collapse of an Omaha plant that killed two employees.

International Nutrition has notified the Occupational Health and Safety Administration 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 on the roof of the Omaha plant caused the building collapse on Jan. 20. OSHA cited International Nutrition for 13 violations of safety and health rules and proposed nearly $121,000 in penalties.
