Gibbon Turkey Processing Plant Bankrupt


Midwest Meat Packing Facility in Gibbon has ceased operations following Chapter 7 involuntary bankruptcy.

Court documents say the company hadn't paid Shinn's Turkey Track, of Dunning, $1.45 million for turkeys. Records also say the company and had a total debt of more than $4.4 million.

It is currently unclear how many people have lost their jobs.

The previous owners closed the plan in December of 2008 because of high feed and fuel costs. The plant reopened in 2010 with an investment from New York-based AMSA International.
