Meat Locker Closes After Failing MDA Inspection

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP)– State officials have temporarily halted operations at a
meat locker in central Missouri.

The Missouri Department of Agriculture said in a release late Thursday that inspectors have temporarily stopped processing operations at Russellville Locker.

Inspections found unsanitary conditions, pest control issues and problems with marketing and labeling. The facility will remain suspended until it completes a satisfactory inspection.

The department says Russellville Locker is a custom processing facility, which processes and packages meat for livestock owners only for their own consumption.

The department says people who’ve conducted recent business with Russellville Locker should also carefully examine all the items processed by the facility.
