Smithfield under attack in North Carolina

Smithfield Foods and its pork-producing subsidiary Murphy Brown are under attack from residents in Wake County, North Carolina

Nearly 600 residents of that county in the eastern part of the state have filed farm nuisance disputes. And they’ve notified Smithfield that they plan to file lawsuits charging that the foul smell and pollution from its hog farms have adversely affected their properties.

Murphy Brown officials are standing behind their environmental management practices.  Company officials say they have an “unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship”.
