SAO PAULO, May 25 (Reuters) - Brazilian meat group ABPA said
on Friday 152 poultry and pork processing plants suspended
production as nationwide truckers' protests crippling roads
continue to hamper the delivery of animal feed for a fifth day.
The figure was updated from 120 units Thursday, the group
said in a statement, alluding to the effects of the blockades.
Lack of feed supplies may cause millions of birds and hogs to
die, ABPA said.
