The Foster Farms plant in Livingston reopened Wednesday after a voluntary closure to set in place new “treatment protocols.”

The plant had been shut down twice in the last six months: once in October during a salmonella outbreak and again in early January after a supposed cockroach infestation.

Foster Farms says during the nine-day closure, production was shifted to other California facilities. Workers returned to the Livingston plant Wednesday morning.

Procedures set in place during the production stop were approved by the USDA, the company said.
