COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - Tyson Foods is adding 60 jobs at one of its Council Bluffs plants a month after closing a beef plant in Denison, Iowa.

Tyson officials said Wednesday that the Council Bluffs plant would add jobs to help produce pork chops and roasts.

The plant that specializes in retail-ready beef and pork products already employs about 1,100. Plant manager Doug Griffin says he’s excited to be creating more jobs in Council Bluffs.

A month ago, Tyson eliminated about 400 jobs about 70 miles away in Denison when it decided to close the beef production plant there. At the time, company officials said it needed to reduce its beef production capacity.
