Meat Producer JBS Poised to Reopen Plants Hit by Cyberattack
Updated on

JBS SA is starting to at least partially reopen most idled beef plants across North America and Australia after a cyberattack forced the world’s largest meat producer to halt operations.

The Brazilian food giant said late Tuesday that it had made “significant progress” to resolve the attack and would have the “vast majority” of its plants operational by Wednesday. A second shift at its Greeley, Colorado facility, one of the largest beef plants in the U.S., was set for a regular production day, while plants in Texas, Nebraska and Wisconsin were resuming partial operations, company Facebook posts said.
