Foster Farms Livingston Plant Reopens

Foster Farms Livingston Plant Reopens
Posted January 22nd, 2014 @ 6:22pm by KFBK News

Foster Farms has resumed operations at its Central California poultry plant following a cockroach problem.  

The plant in Livingston went back online today after being shuttered for ten days. The U.S. Department of Agriculture forced a three-day closure of the plant earlier this month after cockroaches were found on site.

The plant reopened for just one day, and then shut down again for another week as the company worked on sanitation measures at the facility.

The closures came several months after the feds threatened to shut down the Livingston plant and two Foster Farms plants in Fresno because of salmonella issues.
