Tyson Foods, a major supplier of chicken, beef and pork, has issued a dire warning that the food supply chain in breaking. The corporation has announced that “millions of pounds of meat” will soon disappear and that consumers can expect empty grocery store shelves in the near future.

Board chairman John Tyson is quoted in a full page ad which ran on Sunday in The New York Times, Washington Post and Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

The food supply chain is breaking. There will be limited supply of our products available in grocery stores until we are able to reopen our facilities that are currently closed.

As processing facilities close, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, farmers will be forced to slaughter their livestock.  KTLA News reports that the pork industry has been hit the hardest with Smithfield Foods in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, JBS pork processing in Worthington, Minnesota, and the Tyson plant in Waterloo, Iowa, going “offline indefinitely.”
