Local News

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – State officials have cleared a Sioux City pork plant of accusations of mistreatment.

The Iowa Economic Development Authority restored fiscal incentives to Seaboard Triumph Foods after holding the remaining $16.5 million during its investigation.

State officials finished their investigation last month. A spokesperson said they did not receive any credible evidence.

The Federated States of Micronesia requested an investigation into the pork plant after dozens of complaints of abuse from its citizens.
