The guilty plea came about a week after Tyson Foods, one of the world’s largest food companies, put on hold plans to build a $320 million poultry processing plant across the border in Tonganoxie, Kansas, following protests by residents and complaints from surrounding communities.

Among the issues raised by those opposed to the plant was the possible environmental impact from the state-of-the art facility that would have employed 1,600 workers and slaughtered roughly 1.25 million birds weekly.

At mid-afternoon, Tyson Foods shares were down 0.7 percent at $66.28 on the New York Stock Exchange.

This is good news.

Please note, comment, and forward.
