RIPON, Wis. (AP) - ConAgra Foods says it will close one of its cookie plants in Ripon.

WLUK-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1LerJDz ) about 300 full-time employees will be laid off. WLUK reported workers were being told Monday, with layoffs starting in September and completed by December.

ConAgra said the closing covers its west plant that makes soft-bake and so-called enrobed cookies. The company’s east plant, which makes wafer cookies and employs about 80 people, isn’t affected.
