Foster Farms reopens Livingston plant
Foster Farms reopened its largest poultry processing plant Wednesday after voluntarily closing the facility for 10 days to improve safety conditions.
The plant in Livingston, Calif., was cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service for cockroach infestation this month.
As a result, inspectors suspended operations at the factory Jan. 8. They cleared it for reopening two days later. But Foster Farms decided to close the factory again Jan. 12 to expand safety measures.
