Tar Heel plant should reopen Friday morning
TAR HEEL, NC (WWAY) — It looks like factory workers at the Smithfield plant in Tar Heel won’t be headed back to work until tomorrow.
The pork packing plant has been shut down since an ammonia leak Tuesday morning.
Smithfield representatives thought they would have the factory up and running this afternoon, but they had some electrical issues that delayed the cleaning process. They say the plant should be ready to start production first thing tomorrow morning.
