CRETE, Neb. (AP) - Smithfield Foods says a computer issue has forced a suspension of production at several of its plants, including its Farmland Foods plant in the southeast Nebraska town of Crete.

Smithfield spokeswoman Kathleen Kirkham told the Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1PSs1CQ ) Monday that a “technology issue at our data center” was affecting production. Kirkham says that once the problem is solved, Smithfield hopes to make up production by running additional shifts wherever possible.

The Crete plant employs about 2,000 people.
