Indiana Tyson Pork Plant Resumes After Brief Shutdown
Tyson Foods confirmed that plant operations at their Longsport, Ind., facility were resumed Wednesday after a shutdown on Monday and Tuesday.
In an email with Tyson, communications manager Caroline Ahn, said the plant temporarily halted operations “due to a production issue. The issue has been resolved and the plant is back in operation today.”
Local sources said employees on the harvesting side of the facility were sent home Monday afternoon, while the “cold side” continued production.
Tyson Fresh Meats employs more than 2,000 people at its Logansport facilities. The National Pork Board estimates the plant’s daily slaughter capacity is 15,400 as of fall 2017.
