It's the closest we'll get to XL Foods admitting it doesn't know how to run a major beef processing plant. The company at the centre of the biggest beef recall due to e-coli contamination announcing it is handing over the management of the plant to JBS USA, a subsidiary of Brazilian based JBS, the world's largest processor of beef. Along with managing the plant JBS has the option of buying XL assets. Since the recall went into effect last month it has been a comedy of errors at the plant, unfortunately the employees and the community of Brooks haven't been laughing. We've seen employees laid off, called back, only to be laid off a day after reporting to work. We've seen delays in instituting a recall despite positive tests from U.S. inspectors. And throughout it all we haven't seen the Nilsson brothers and have rarely 'heard' them. Let's hope this is the first step in turning things around for the processing plant, the producers and most importantly for the consumers.
