Massive Fire Destroys Commercial Egg Farm Belonging To Top US Supplier

Zero Hedge

Dozens of food processing plants were destroyed and/or damaged last year by “accidental fires.” After several months of a lull in mysterious fires rippling through the food industry, the first major one of the new year was reported by NBC Connecticut on Saturday.

More than 100 firefighters battled a massive fire at a commercial egg farm in Bozrah, Connecticut, on Saturday afternoon.

According to Epoch Times, firefighters spent hours extinguishing a 150-foot-by-400-foot chicken coop at Hillandale Farms, which contained about 100,000 chickens.

A Salvation Army canteen truck was on the scene, providing food. According to the Salvation Army, about 100,000 chickens may have died in the fire. It also said that no  injuries had been reported.

Hillandale Farms is one of the largest suppliers of chicken eggs in the US.

Their eggs are found in major supermarkets.

It’s unclear what the fire-damaged Bozrah location will mean for Hallandale Farms’ national egg supply chain. The fire comes at a time when the US suffers from a severe shortage of eggs due to bird flu wiping out tens of millions of egg-laying hens.

Egg shortages have been reported at supermarkets nationwide.

Prices of a dozen Grade A eggs at the supermarket have jumped to astronomical levels.

This could be the start of another string of suspicious fires at food plants. Citing Bloomberg data, news stories for “food plant fire” jumped the most in a decade last year. Odd right?

Some have speculated ‘food processing plants don’t just “accidentally”‘ catch on fire at the rate seen last year. Others are asking: Is the US food supply chain under attack?

  1. If “accidental fires.” suddenly happen in several places within short period of time, it takes a fool and/or a criminal to claim that. The usual suspects – CIA and FBI. It’s well up their alley …

      • Yes, it’s in line with the bird flue scam testing in USA last year, using the PCR duplication process as an excuse to sabotage the poultry industry, ie the food supply. The bird flue was “found” at every tested farm, which doesn’t make any sense. Using PCR as test can prove anything, so I wonder if any of the farmers realised what was actually happening, before it was too late …? Since it happened, I have not seen any news about it. Now they are faking issues about the eggs …

        The harm earlier done by the regimes in China (Mao), USSR (Stalin/Brezhnev) and Germany (Hitler) in that order, are soon to be considered as minor issues, compared to what is going on now …


  2. Juxtaposing the fact that “100,000 chickens may have died in the fire” with “no injuries have been reported” emphasizes the horrors to me of factory farming. Also, bird flu did not destroy all those egg-laying hens. People afraid of bird flu destroyed the hens.

    Let’s assign causes more carefully, please.
