Worker seriously injured in incident at large warehouse used by Food Lion near Dunn


DUNN, NC (WNCN) – A worker was seriously injured in an incident Saturday at a large warehouse used by Food Lion grocery stores near Dunn in Harnett County.

The incident was reported early Saturday at the facility just south of Dunn near Long Branch Road off Interstate 95, officials said.

The large warehouse is owned by ADUSA Distribution. The company said the worker was involved in an “accident” but did not release any other information.

Firefighters said a man was injured and first taken to Betsy Johnson Hospital before being airlifted to another hospital for treatment.

The 1.3 million square foot warehouse, which employs more than 700 workers, ships items to more than 200 Food Lion stores, according to Food Lion. The warehouse opened in 1987 and was damaged by a tornado in 2011.

“Our hearts go out to our associate who was involved in this accident and his family during this difficult time,” said Christy Phillips-Brown, spokesperson for ADUSA Distribution, in an email.

The company said it was investigating the incident.

No other information was released.
