Poultry producers in Missouri are suing Tyson after it shut down a processing plant

Poultry producers in Missouri are suing Tyson.

This comes after the closure of one of the company’s processing plants. The lawsuit alleges these farmers believed the facility would remain open for many years but are now millions of dollars in debt, after investing in Tyson contracts.

They say that the company knew as early as November of 2021 that it was closing the plant.

Cal-Maine, who is taking over, is proposing paying the farmers half of the money, but not until after they release Tyson from liability.
