The Kraft Heinz plant in Springfield is expected to reopen today, following a deep cleaning over the weekend, after two employees test positive for COVID 19.
According to a statement from Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs Michael Mullen, the two employees worked in the warehouse part of the facility and were last there on March 19th.
Those individuals are being treated and are currently in quarantine.
Employees who may have interacted with them are also being asked to self-isolate and be checked for symptoms.
It’s unknown what items may have been handled by the employees or where those items may end up being shipped to at this time.
The plant in Springfield manufactures Kraft’s Mac and Cheese boxed products, including the special editions.
