Officials at Archer Daniels Midland, one of the world's largest food processors, on Tuesday were assessing damage to an Enid, Okla., flour mill following an explosion on Monday, a company source said.



Two workers were injured in the explosion, with one ADM employee still hospitalized on Tuesday with second and third degrees burns and broken bones.



"The plant is down and the decision (about when to reopen the plant) has not been made," said Karla Miller, spokeswoman at ADM.



"The cause is still under investigation and OSHA (the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is on-site," she told Reuters at mid-afternoon Tuesday.



No information was available about financial losses to ADM, Miller added.



The Enid News & Eagle on Tuesday reported an explosion had occurred in a storage area of the Enid ADM flour milling plant, injuring two people.



About 60 people were working at the plant when the explosion in the receiving area of the floor mill was reported.



At the time of the explosion, 280,000 pounds of flour were being prepared for loading. The receiving area has 36 flour bins with a capacity for 1.4 million pounds of flour, the newspaper said.
