Keira Lombardo’s response

Keira Lombardo
EVP, Corporate Affairs

May 5, 2020 — The allegations in this petition are completely false. They grossly mischaracterize the company, its values and its response to COVID-19. We are doing everything in our power to help protect our team members from COVID-19 in the workplace. We moved quickly to implement an extensive array of COVID-19 processes, protocols and protective measures. At the core of Smithfield’s COVID-19 response is an ongoing focus on employee health and safety and continued adherence with – at a minimum – the CDC and OSHA guidance. Please read this information to get the facts.
