PORTALES, N.M. (AP) - A Portales company whose peanut processing plant was linked to a national salmonella outbreak is working to restart operations.
Sunland Inc. Katalin Coburn tells the Portales News-Tribune the firm's board plans a meeting Monday to talk about the company's fate.
The company's peanut processing and peanut butter plant has been shuttered since the recall in September.
Coburn said Friday the peanut processing part of the company's operations were being readied to restart.
Coburn said to her knowledge there have been no layoffs.
The company recalled more than 100 nut and nut butter products after the outbreak.
