General Mills Might Close Hazelwood Plant

Hazelwood, MO – General Mills says it's considering closing it's plant in Hazelwood.

The Minneapolis-based company is talking with two unions about the probable closure next fall. A final decision is expected in the coming weeks.

The plant employs 421 people, who make frozen bakery goods. General Mills bought the plant in October last year from Pillsbury, which had owned it since 1999.
