NACOGDOCHES, Texas (KTRE) - A cyber attack will affect operations at the Pilgrim’s plant in Nacogdoches, the chicken producer announced.

On its Facebook page, the company posted Monday night that a weekend cyber attack is impacting IT systems.

“First processing will now work on Tuesday, June 1, 2021 but start time will be 3 hours later than normal start time for first shift. Everyone else will work their normal schedule,” the post stated.

Pilgrim’s, the world’s largest chicken producer, said it would provide further updates to workers at its Nacogdoches facility via text message.

JBS, the majority shareholder of Pilgrim’s, announced Sunday that the attack was affecting some of its servers in North America and Australia.

There’s no indication data had been compromised or misused, CNN reported.
