Tyson Foods said it is diverting hogs normally received at its Madison, Neb., plant to other Tyson Foods pork facilities as it investigates a recent fire. The company said it does not expect the disruption to hinder meeting customer needs.
"We’re investigating a fire at our Madison, Nebraska facility on Sunday,” a company spokesperson said. “The safety of our team members is always our top priority, so we immediately evacuated the facility. We want to thank the local fire department for their quick response.”
Multiple fire departments responded to the fire that officials have determined was an interior fire located in the production area.
Tyson said the plant will have limited operations for the remainder of this week while it fully assesses the damage and begin repairs. “We will ensure our full-time, active team members are taken care of as we gradually resume production.”
The Madison pork facility harvests approximately 8,000 pigs a day and employs about 1,200 people.
