FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — A Central California chicken processing plant has resumed operations after shutting down for two weeks to combat an infestation of cockroaches.

Foster Farms in Livingston, Calif., said on Wednesday that it had called its employees back to work after ensuring all necessary measures were taken to properly clean the plant.

Inspectors for the U.S. Department of Agriculture closed the plant on Jan. 8 after finding cockroaches on five separate occasions over four months. That closure came three months after inspectors threatened a shutdown because of salmonella problems at the Livingston plant and two Foster Farms sites in Fresno.

Foster Farms issued no product recalls as a result of those problems, but advised consumers to handle chicken properly and cook it thoroughly.
