West Liberty Foods says it’s discontinuing its ready-to-eat slicing operations in West Liberty, Iowa. First-shift log fabrication operations and turkey harvesting will not be impacted.

Company officials said some of its turkey-slicing operations will be moved to a plant in Bolingbrook, Illinois.

The employee layoffs will begin in late April and will occur in stages through November.
