OMAHA (DTN) -- Arkansas-based Tyson Foods will pay a civil penalty of nearly $4 million and is required to make improvements to 23 plants in four states in response to a series of eight separate incidents between 2006 and 2010, according to a joint news release Friday from the U.S. Justice Department and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
