A truck enters the Foster Farms processing plant on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, in Livingston, Calif. / Rich Pedroncelli AP

LIVINGSTON, Calif. (AP) - Work at a California chicken plant is to resume Saturday, ending a temporary shutdown ordered by federal inspectors who found cockroaches.

Foster Farms says it met demands by the U.S. Department of Agriculture by performing a thorough cleanup and treatment of its plant in Livingston, Calif., about 25 miles southeast of Modesto. The company says employees will be called back to work Saturday.

The plant closed Jan. 8 when inspectors found the cockroaches on five separate occasions in various parts of the plant over four months. The closure came three months after inspectors threatened a shutdown because of salmonella problems at the Livingston plant and two Foster Farms sites in Fresno.
