SMITHTON, Mo. (AP) _ Missouri agriculture officials are allowing meat processing to resume at a Smithton company.

The Missouri Department of Agriculture said Wednesday that PBR Custom Meat Processing had its permits reinstated after undergoing a satisfactory inspection. The company is classified as a custom exempt processing operation, meaning it can process livestock for the animals’ owners but cannot sell meat to the public.

Last Friday, the operation was suspended because of sanitation issues.
