A Jackson Clarion-Ledger investigation has uncovered a slew of food safety violations at Mississippi meat processing plants. The Clarion-Ledger found that despite numerous, repeat violations at facilities across the state, Enslin & Son Packing Co. was the only plant in the past decade to suspend operations in order to deal with a contamination. The company's Plant Manager, Freddie Enslin, said regarding a 2012 recall related to Listeria,
"It's always a possibility that one of those things will sneak up on you if you're not cautious. We went like a shotgun and got everything out of the plant and just sterilized the whole thing."
