Another packing house is overwhelmed with positive tests!

Logansport, Ind- A Tyson owned pork plant have had 800 people tested positive for the Coronavirus. The plant employs 2300 to 3000 employees.

Thus, Trump signed an executive order to force the pack houses to say open!

1. Will China buy the meat?

A lot of the pork raised here goes to China.

2. I'm not a vegetarian, but I never eat that much meat

It might be a good time to avoid it for a while.

Even if the meat you buy is infected with COVID-19 and cooking it thoroughly might destroy the virus and it is probably perfectly safe to eat, you’re still bringing a potentially contaminated product into your home. Get a little sloppy while preparing it, using a wooden cutting board, or whatever and it would be an easy way for it to spread into your home.

3. We go to local carnicerias for meat

Locally sourced meat, even if a little more expensive. I used to get it in the grocery store if something we wanted was on sale, but i would rather pay more than support companies that do that to their employees.

4. what I worry about...

...since these places are being ordered to still continue meat production, I worry that some kind of bacteria will be included in the meat.

It seems like a good time to become a vegetarian...

5. Commercial farms should have similar problems.

And at least the meat is usually cooked.

6. Yes while at the same time refusing to mandate the plants adopt safety measures for the workers

He could have done so but then it would have resulted in the owners having to spend some of that filthy lucre they’re earning on the backs and bodies of the workers. And his sycophantic Rethuglican governors threatening the workers with starvation if they refuse to go back to one of these life threatening reservoirs of disease. Once more we see the core principles of the Rethuglicans on display people are expendable but profits are sacrosanct. No meat plant or any other business should be permitted to reopen without implementing the OSHA/CDC guidelines to protect workers as they are a menace to their employees and the community in their current disease culturing state.

7. This proves that social distancing works. The very close quarters in these plants have acted...

..as a laboratory for how the virus spreads. Sadly, the people unwittingly became the lab animals thanks to heartless ownership.

8. Starting to worry about my meat supply.

Live in a rural area on a main highway and with the reduced traffic, I'm not getting the usual fresh road kill.
