Arkansas Cargill plant at center of salmonella outbreak accused of mass hiring discrimination

The U.S. Labor Department alleges that the Cargill Meat Solutions plant in Springdale, Ark., discriminated against more than 4,000 qualified women and non-Asians who applied for entry-level jobs. Now, labor officials are moving to cut off more than $550 million in Department of Defense contracts with Cargill, one of the nation’s largest meatpackers. The Springdale plant also drew national notoriety this year when it recalled more than 36 million pounds of ground turkey after two salmonella outbreaks.
