Meat plant shut by inspectors reopens

Officials at Central Valley Meat Co. said in a statement Wednesday that they took immediate action to fix the cleanliness problems.

HANFORD, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California meat processing plant that was shuttered by federal inspectors Monday because of unsanitary conditions has reopened.

Officials at Central Valley Meat Co. said in a statement Wednesday that they took immediate action to fix the cleanliness problems. Neither the company nor federal officials discussed the problems in detail.

Central Valley is a supplier for the National School Lunch Program.

Alexandra Tarrant, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, confirmed in a statement Wednesday that the company took corrective actions and the plant has resumed operations.

The plant is in Hanford, Calif., about 30 miles south of Fresno.
