Very soon, Amertica will likely begin suffering severe meat shortages as more and more meat processing plants close down.
And by sheer coincidence, America’s number one enemy China, just happens to own some of those very processing plants.
Is this a purposeful attempt at trying to further damage the United States economy, or just just part of an unfortunate set of events?
Judge for yourself.

China-Owned Smithfield Foods Closing Plants,
Threatening US Meat Supply
America’s meat supply might be in jeopardy as workers at slaughterhouses and meat processing plants are diagnosed with COVID-19, leading to closures across the country.
The effects of such closures are complex and could have far-reaching consequences across the food supply chain, putting America’s livestock farmers in jeopardy of going under as wholesale prices take a dive.
Even more alarming is the fact that the largest provider of pork in the U.S. is owned and held by a corporation based in China.
Smithfield Foods is the country’s largest producer of pork products, and its products are sold under the popular brands Nathan’s Famous, Farmland, Eckrich, Armour and Healthy Ones, to name a few.
The longtime Virginia-based company was acquired in 2013 by Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd. (now WH Group Ltd.).
Smithfield, with plants across the country that employ tens of thousands of Americans, announced last week it had closed multiple locations due to COVID-19 outbreaks among its workforce.
The company addressed the closures of plants in Cudahy, Wisconsin; Martin City, Missouri; and Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in recent news releases.
