WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, released the following statement today after the servers of JBS USA suffered a breach:  

“It’s alarming to see another cyberattack against a crucial supply chain. JBS has taken action to resolve this issue. However, the fact that nearly 20% of U.S. meat processing capacity can go offline due a single event could be a hit to Nebraska’s economy, the cattle market as whole, and consumers across America. I will continue to monitor this closely as more facts come to light.”
