From Newsweek:

7 Injured in Explosion as Fire Engulfs Food Plant; Smoke Visible for Miles
Multiple workers are hospitalized following an explosion at a food processing facility that has nearby residents on alert for possible evacuation.

The explosion occurred Tuesday evening at Shearer's Foods in Hermiston, a city in agriculturally rich eastern Oregon. No deaths have been reported from the blast, but the extent of the damage to the plant and its future were not clear. City officials are concerned what the fire could mean for the community and local economy.

From the Phoenix, AZ CBS affiliate:

50,000 lb of food destroyed after fire ripped through Maricopa Food Pantry
It’s a long road to recovery for Maricopa Food Pantry after a fire destroyed around 50,000 lb of food. The fire happened just 15 minutes after their food bank closed on Monday morning. Smoke was still coming from the rubble 24 hours later. “It had to be 40-50 feet in the air, just pure black smoke. It engulfed the entire neighborhood,” said Maricopa Food Pantry President Mike Connelly. “The heat we could feel down at the corner.”

Crews battled fire for 16 hours at East Conway Beef and Pork
Neighbors banded together to support crews as they battled a fire in Conway for about 16 hours Monday night.

More than 12 departments and agencies worked together to put out the fire at East Conway Beef and Pork.

This is just a quick search of the net for stories going back 30 days.  A lot of large food producers are being hit.

What is happening here?  Who authorized this?  Who is doing this?
