First, there was a gas shortage in the southern states due to a cyberattack that stopped the flow and sales of gas. Now there has been a cyber attack on JBS beef plants, forcing them to stop production on Tuesday.
The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) reported that the company is “working around the clock to resolve” the issue at hand.
The Hill reports:
UFCW union officials told The Hill that eight JBS beef facilities spread across the U.S. were experiencing shutdowns as of Tuesday, while the company's pork plants in seven states remained operational.
JBS did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill, though the company said in a statement reported by Bloomberg that it expected the vast majority of its plants to be operational by Wednesday.
UFCW International President Marc Perrone said in the statement that the group is "urging JBS to ensure that all of its meatpacking workers receive their contractually guaranteed pay as these plant shutdowns continue."
"UFCW is calling on JBS to work with state and federal leaders to help get JBS meatpacking workers back on the job as soon as possible so these essential workers can continue to keep our country’s food supply fully operational and secure as this pandemic continues," he said.
JBS, the world's largest meat processor, was hit with a cyberattack on Sunday that affected its servers in North America and Australia.
The company said in a statement Monday that it was "not aware of any evidence at this time that any customer, supplier or employee data has been compromised or misused as a result of the situation. Resolution of the incident will take time, which may delay certain transactions with customers and suppliers."
We can only wonder if this means meat shortages are coming next....let’s hope not!
