Some workers at Louisville's JBS pork plant will be starting on a delay for the second day in a row Wednesday following the cybersecurity attack on the world's largest meat supplier over the weekend.


The factory in Louisville's Butchertown neighborhood announced workers in multiple departments would be starting two hours late Wednesday, including the cut floor, which had started on a three-hour delay Tuesday.


"This weekend our company was the target of a cyberattack that has impacted our IT systems," JBS' Louisville plant said in a Facebook post. "We continue to work through the situation and will keep you informed."


In a statement, the company said the attack affected some of its servers supporting its North American and Australian IT systems
