They will not be shutting down. They cleaned and all are not wearing masks and taking precautions.

Do you have a source other than a random rumor? Just spoke to someone who lives in postville and they said there is absolutely no truth to it, and even if it were, it's not a foodborne virus. If we learn anything from this whole situation it should be not to spread mass panic based on a rumor
Arguing on DDF is like getting arrested, everything you say can and will be used against you, so just remain silent!!

PLEASE DON'T FORWARD SUCH POSTS WITHOUT THE SOURCE.  IT CAN SHUT BUSINESSES JUST FROM A RUMOR.

BESIDES THE PANIC IT CAN CAUSE...

Panic (whether “legitimate” or imagined) will cause shortages much faster than a supply constraints.

See the toilet paper panic for evidence.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Exactly my point.  People jump to forward just so they can be the news bearer

This was reported on ywn a few days ago. They also have a press release from agri posted. Here is the text

To our Customers,

As you might have seen in published reports, there have been three confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Postville, Iowa. We can confirm that this is in fact the case. All three cases are in the same family, two parents and an older son, who had traveled to New York for a simcha.

Due to strict, aggressive guidelines already implemented in our facility at the onset of this pandemic, when they exhibited symptoms upon their return to Postville, they were immediately quarantined and will remain that way until medically recommended. In addition, those that were in direct contact have also been in self-quarantine although no one else has shown any symptoms of the virus.

Internally, we have taken even more aggressive steps to educate ourselves and our team members on ways to help prevent or reduce the risk of exposure. We have also implemented additional sanitizing and hand washing procedures above and beyond what was already in place. Agristar will continue to follow recommendations from the CDC and the Iowa Department of Public Health, while continuing to supplement those recommendations with our own enhanced guidelines.



The safety of our employees, our products and our customers is paramount. That is why we have put in place these aggressive measures to ensure the safety and the continued supply of our products during these uncertain times.

There is currently no disruption in our production and no compromise on the safety and quality of our products.

We appreciate the outpouring of concern for the affected individuals and wish them, and all those effected by this pandemic, a speedy recovery.
