When The Slaughter Resumes…

Sometimes corporate spokespersons speak the truth without being aware of how true their words are:
OTTUMWA (AP) --- Some production areas of a meatpacking plant, where a man died in an accident last week remained shut down as investigators
continued to look into the cause.

Paul McCrory, 41, died Wednesday in an accident at the Cargill Meat Solutions plant, a pork processing plant. Authorities said he was trapped for about 40 minutes when a rail on a conveyor system collapsed. He was taken to Ottumwa Regional Health Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Cargill spokesman Mark Klein …. said he could not offer an estimate of when the slaughter operation would resume.
Indeed. Does it ever end?
