“The food supply chain is breaking,” warns Tyson Foods president over the closure of a meat factory


Meat lines may be in the future as the coronavirus wreaks havoc in the industry, resulting in the closure or reduction of operations in pork, beef and poultry plants across the country. Tyson Foods President John H. Tyson explained it in full-page newspaper ads, saying, “The food supply chain is breaking. “

The executive warning came days after Tyson shutdown of its large pork processing plant in Waterloo, Iowa, after several employees tested positive for COVID-19.

the the closure is among dozens involving large companies, with a Smithfield Foods pork plant in South Dakota also out of service. JBS USA temporarily closed its meat packing plant in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Sunday after health officials traced at least 189 positive cases at the facility last week.
