1 min read

CHICAGO (Reuters) – U.S. chicken company Perdue Farms closed a distribution center in Rincon, Georgia, and canceled a day shift at its Dillon, South Carolina, processing plant on Friday due to Hurricane Ian, a spokesperson said.

The company delayed some chicken production until next week and re-arranged scheduling to keep workers safe in the storm, spokesperson Diana Souder said. Perdue will still ultimately produce the same volume, she said.
