Poultry Plant Temporarily Shut Down

Posted: Updated:

A Marshall County business was forced to shut-down, and not because of the government.

Water discoloration caused Pilgrims Pride Poultry Plant in Guntersville to stop work this morning. 

The plant sent workers home.

The Guntersville Water Department says there are no health concerns.

Crews were doing routine maintenance in the water lines and stirred-up something that caused the water to change colors, so workers couldn't use the water to wash-down chickens.

Crews drained the lines, and work will resume on Saturday.
