Tyson Foods suspens Iowa CEO Tyson Foods suspended top officials at an Iowa pork processing plant without pay on Thursday amid a COVID-19 scandal that involves allegations of a cash buy-in, winner-take-all betting pool against employees.

Among the claims presented in a recent wrongful death lawsuit against Tyson Foods are that the Waterloo, Iowa plant remained open even as the coronavirus ripped through the facility in April, and that higher-ups bet on how many employees would end up getting sick.

Tyson Foods CEO Dean Banks said he was “extremely upset” over the claims, and that law firm Covington & Burling LLP will conduct an investigation into the allegations led by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, according to The Associated Press.
