Any onsite personnel were evacuated and there have been no reported injuries. The facility had been closed for the Winter season and the team was not producing onsite. "This is an active situation and we’re working closely with our team, first responders and the community," a company statement said. "We are extremely grateful for all of the first responders who helped ensure the safety of all personnel onsite at the facility and those in the surrounding area." The fire is contained and the shelter in place has been lifted. There is no risk to the surrounding community.
Taylor Farms anticipates no disruptions in supply to customers. The company's 20 other production locations continue to operate. "Thank you for your patience as we work through this difficult situation. We will provide updates as we know more."
