LaFargeville Hood plant back up and running after ‘cyber security event’

LAFARGEVILLE, New York (WWNY) – A dairy production company in LaFargeville has resumed production after what company officials are calling a “cyber security event.”

HP Hood is a national chain that makes dairy products like sour cream, cottage cheese, and ice cream.

Spokesperson Lynne Bohan told 7 News the event took all of its plants offline last week, and as a result, was unable to manufacture or receive raw materials, including milk.

Most of its locations are back up and running, including the LaFargeville plant.

Town of Orleans Supervisor Kevin Rarick lives near the facility and says the milk trucks that deliver daily haven’t been by in about a week, which he says is very unusual.

Bohan said, “We are grateful to our employees, including our team in LaFargeville, for their hard work and dedication during this time.”
