LIMA, Peru — A com­pany that op­er­ates McDon­ald’s restau­rants in Latin Amer­ica has been fined $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 the Dec. 15 deaths of 19-year-old Car­los Cam­pos and 18 year-old Alexan­dra Por­ras.

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.
