A fire that started last night at a Taylor Farms facility in Salinas, CA, is currently contained, according to multiple reports. 

sdf"On April 13th, our primary Taylor Farms California Foodservice production facility at 1207 Abbott Street, Salinas, CA, was severely damaged by a structure fire," the company said in a statement. "Any onsite personnel were evacuated and there have been no reported injuries."

The facility had been closed for the winter season and the team was not producing onsite.

"This is an active situation and we’re working closely with our team, first responders and the community," Taylor said. "We anticipate no disruptions in supply to customers. Our other 20 production locations are continuing to operate."

The company said its immediate plan is to continue operating its Yuma, AZ, facility, which is currently servicing its foodservice customers. "Over the next few days and weeks Taylor Farms will be utilizing all of our North American capacity to continue to support our partners with assured supply," the company said. "Our total production locations and geographic diversity is our best defense to this scenario. We will work to reassign and support our Salinas Foodservice production team this season as we rebuild the facility."

Earlier today a one-mile area around the facility was evacuated, and the Salinas Fire Department and Police Department issued a shelter-in-place order for a larger area.
