Roach infestation closes California poultry plant
LIVINGSTON, Calif. - January 9, 2014 (WPVI) -- Operations at a California Poultry plant have come to a halt after the USDA discovered a cockroach infestation.
One of the biggest foster farms plants in California is infested with live cockroaches according to the USDA.
The agency says the infestation posed a public health threat and operation at the plant will be suspended until the problem is resolved.
A representative for foster farms says the plant has been treated and no other facilities were affected.
The same plant is linked to a salmonella outbreak that sickened more than 400 people last year.
