Tyson Foods Suspending Operations at Major Pork Plant Due to COVID-19
Tyson Foods says it’s suspending operations at a major pork plant because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The company says more than 180 infections are linked to the Iowa facility.
It’s Tyson’s largest pork plant, accounting for nearly 4% of U.S. processing capacity.
The company warns the closure will damage the nation’s pork supply.
Tyson says it also plans to close a pork plant in Indiana by the end of the week.
