Smithfield Foods was founded in the year 1936. The company has been operational for almost 83 years now.

    Hope you are safe and sane given the current situation! I know you have a ton on your plate, so I’ll clarify I’m writing this note to help Smithfield Foods address the safety of your employees and facilities moving forward.

    The owners of Municipal Parking Services in Minneapolis recently launched Sentry Health to help address the demand we’ve heard from some of the world’s largest companies, including a top beef producer, bank, and automotive leader, proactively stopping the spread of COVID-19.

    Given that 25-50% of cases are asymptomatic, our solution “audits” hand sanitation for additional security/liability, while also screening for: temperature, identity/facial recognition with open API’s to link to your current security system for faster adoption. The result? A quick and safe way to safely guarantee you’re stopping the spread and shield liability from COVID-19.

    Please let me know if I can send more information or discuss how we can help Smithfield Foods quickly on an intro call.

    Thank you and looking forward,

    Gil Ford

    Dear Smithfield Foods


    DEAR Poison control,

    Stop going against our PRESIDENT.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP said that it is okay to inject or drink bleach and other disinfectants in order to kill the coronavirus.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP is telling us the truth.

    You are telling us not to listen to PRESIDENT TRUMP when he is telling Americans how to get rid of the coronavirus.


    You are not.

    You don’t get to be the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES  by being dumb and stupid.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP is a genius.

    even Trump says he is.

    And a genius is very smart and wise and certainly knows what he is talking about.

    If disinfectants can kill the disease on the outside,
    Then they can kill it on the inside.

    It’s true that disinfectants do not taste very good but all you have to do is mix them with juices.

    Adding a little raw lemon juice or another citric acid to bleach will make it into a tasty beverage.

    Also it makes a great mouthwash.

    Before you swallow it just swish it around in your mouth like Listerine or Scope and it will kill any viruses that might be in your mouth.



    HE is the greatest President the world has ever seen.
    And people like you and the news media who defy him are traitors.

    The PRESIDENT says that if anyone disagrees with him about anything then that is TREASON and MUTINY.

    That is what you are  doing.


    PRESIDENT TRUMP will not forget this and when the time comes he will punish you and everyone else who  has defied him.

    The news media is also committing mutiny against the PRESIDENT by reporting that trump’s disinfectant statements are not true.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP has been warning us about FAKE NEWS for a  long time and this is a good example of it.

    Doesn’t seem like the wilson Nc plant cares about the safety of their employees with the spread of coronavirus widening most employees don’t feel safe being at work around others who are coughing and sneezing especially employees like me who have 2 small kids at home


    Is there any help for employees being physically and verbally attached and the Peru indiana plant? The new hires are being abused and ran away! HELP!


    To whom it may concern I like to know if you mail out coupon’s for you Polska Kielbasa or on any of your meet, If so do you mail out some coupon’s to DENNIS LEE WALTERS
