Food Meat Plants, Fears Grow of Employee Sickness



In overcrowded meat plants, employee illness struck a high in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Three of the largest meat plants in the U.S. - Tyson Foods, JBS USA, and Smithfield Foods - did not provide adequate protective gear to workers including face masks.

There have been at least 3,300 instances of worker illness related to these three plants, and 17 deaths.
