The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has identified COVID-19 outbreaks at nine industrial facilities in Vernon, including four meatpacking plants.

The largest outbreak occurred at the Smithfield Foods-owned Farmer John plant ó producer of the beloved Dodger Dog ó where 153 of 1,837 employees tested positive for COVID-19 between March and May, the county said Sunday.

The other eight facilities with outbreaks are CLW Foods (meat), Vie De France Yamazaki (baked goods), Cal Farms Meat (meat), Takaokaya USA (green tea and other products), F. Gavina & Sons (coffee), Golden West Trading (meat), Overhill Farms (frozen food), and Rose and Shore (deli meat and prepared foods).

The county did not release information on the number of employees who tested positive at those facilities.

2. Hmmm..."beloved buttholes and lips" doesn't have quite the same flair, does it? Either way, it's

beyond tragic how the workers are being endangered in these places. And then they end up getting sick as well as further infecting the general population. Lose/lose for all.
