Thecompany said in a statement it is“exercising vigilance” and dedicatingadditional time to ensure its preventa-tive plan is realized.Work had resumed Saturday afterFoster Farms announced it met thedemands of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’by performing a thoroughcleanup and treatment of the plant.The company says no chicken productwas affected.The USDAsaid in a statement that itlifted its suspension and officials willmonitor the plant once it reopens.The plant closed Jan. 8 wheninspectors found the cockroaches onfive separate occasions in variousparts of the plant over four months.That closure came three months afterinspectors threatened a shutdownbecause of salmonella problems at theLivingston plant and two FosterFarms sites in Fresno.Those facilities stayed open as thecompany agreed to improve safe-guards. It issued no recalls of productsand instead advised consumers to han-dle chicken properly and to cook itthoroughly. The company said in its statementSunday that maintenance workers willremain on the job during the volun-tary closure. Other workers will becalled back once full operationsresume. The company also said it has tem-porarily shifted production to itsother plants in California’s CentralValley. Foster Farms spokeswomanKarmina Zafiro declined to elaborateon the statement.
