Court orders BRF meat plant in southern Brazil shut for 15 days

SAO PAULO, May 8 (Reuters) - A municipal court in the southern Brazilian city of Lajeado has ordered a meat processing plant owned by BRF SA closed for 15 days in order to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus in the region, the company said in a statement on Friday.

BRF said it would appeal. The local court issued the ruling at the request of the state prosecutor's office in Rio Grande do Sul, where Lajeado is located.
