LIMA: A company that operates McDonald's restaurants in Latin America has been fined USD 254,000 after the electrocution deaths of two employees who were cleaning a restaurant kitchen in Peru.

Peru's National Superintendency for Labor Rights on Thursday recommended that McDonald's franchise owner Arcos Dorados pay the fine for violations that may have resulted in December.

The Peruvian agency said the McDonald's subsidiary failed to give its employees proper security training and did not conduct periodic risk assessments at its restaurants.

Arcos Dorados operates more than 2,000 McDonald's restaurants in 20 Latin American countries.

The company closed its Peruvian outlets for two days following the deaths of its employees and said it is collaborating with investigators.
