Many will have missed it due to the recent Roe v. Wade news, but yet another fire has erupted at a US food processing plant, this time in Fresno, California.
On Sunday night, a fire broke out at the Saladino’s plant on Shaw Avenue and Golden State Boulevard, which required employees to be evacuated. It isn’t clear what the extent of the damage is yet.
Just hours later, firefighters were called back to respond to an ammonia leak.
Curiously, this latest fire has received almost no coverage, with Google searches producing more stories about how an increase in food processing plant fires is a “conspiracy theory.”
Except it isn’t a theory. As reported by The Counter Signal, food processing plant fires and other destabilizing events are rapidly increasing in frequency, with the number of such fires more than doubling throughout the lockdowns.
The last fire at a food processing plant we covered occurred on April 20, less than two weeks ago, at a Perdue Farms soybean plant in Chesapeake, Virginia. No one was injured, but soybean products were destroyed or had to be removed.
It’s gotten so ubiquitous that Fox News host Tucker Carlson felt it prudent to address the unignorable increase in food processing plant fires.
“I just want to nail this down so our viewers understand. There have been confirmed over a dozen disabling accidents at food plants over the last month,” Carlson said, after reporting on yet another fire that occurred days after another food processing plant was crashed into by a plane.
Due to the frequency of the events, many on social media have picked up on the trend and are openly suggesting that the food processing plant fires are intentional and that someone or some group is trying to create and exacerbate food shortages.
