Kildare Fianna Fáil TD James Lawless (above left) speaks to a reporter from VMT on the outbreak of coronavirus cases at O’Brien Fine Foods, home of Brady’s ham, where 80 employees have reportedly tested positive for Covid-19.
All operations at the facility have been stopped.
Over three months ago I warned the Minister that the meat plants and food processing industries could become major Covid clusters.
I was accused of smearing the companies.
These new outbreaks are a result of light touch and self regulation of these businesses. https://t.co/BNvUvA86Ih
