WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The USDA temporarily shut down slaughter operations at the Tyson plant in Waterloo on Thursday.

According to Gary Mickelson, spokesperson for Tyson, the USDA had concerns over a procedural matter in the slaughter operations at the plant and production in that part of the plant was suspended for a few hours starting at 8:00 a.m.

Operations resumed after the matter was resolved.

The processing part of the plant, which Mickelson says employs the most people, was never impacted.
