Food giant Dole temporarily halts U.S. production following ransomware cyberattack
One of the largest producers and distributors of fresh fruits and vegetables shut down its operations in the United States
this week following an alleged cyberattack.
Dole Food Company fresh vegetables division senior vice president Emanuel Lazopoulos wrote in a February 10 memo that the company was "in the midst of a Cyber Attack," prompting it to "shut down our systems throughout North America."
Dole sent this memo to various supermarkets after customers complained about popular Dole food products like prepackaged salads, including salad blends, salad kits, and ready-to-eat salads, being out of stock.
"Our plants are shut down for the day and all our shipments are on hold," the memo further read. "Please bear with us as we navigate our way and hopefully we will minimize this event."
(Related: Last spring, the corrupt FBI warned that
these types of cyberattacks would be ramping up, particularly against food companies.)
Is America's food supply under attack by the government?
Dole spokesman William Goldfield confirmed the ransomware incident in his own statement, which was posted to the company's website. It explains that a "cybersecurity incident" was "identified as ransomware," and that the company "moved quickly to contain the threat."
According to Goldfield, Dole also "engaged leading third-party cybersecurity experts, who have been working in partnership with Dole's internal teams to remediate the issue and secure systems."
"The company has notified law enforcement about the incident and are cooperating with their investigation," Goldfield added. "While continuing to investigate the scope of the incident, the impact to Dole operations has been limited."
It remains unknown precisely how long Dole had to shut down its production lines in North America. It is also unclear if the company had to pay a ransom to the hackers to get everything back online.
We can now add Dole to the ever-growing list of American food companies that have been targeted by hackers, set on fire, or otherwise sabotaged. Is it all intentional – and worse yet, is the likes of the FBI responsible for this spate of apparent terrorism?
"Anyone find it ironic that plant-based meat and insect food production facilities NEVER have fires, train derailment or cyberattacks?" asked someone in the comment section, pointing out that only meat, eggs, dairy, fruit and vegetables – you know, things that are actually healthy
for people to eat – are being targeted for destruction.
Another wrote that this is only the "early stages" of what the globalists have planned for the formerly free world, which is fast becoming a fascist nightmare pretty much everywhere.
"Wait for the full-blown cyber conflict with China and Russia," this person added. "The perfect ruse for deleting a failing fiat system."
That failing fiat system, also known as the United States dollar and the Federal Reserve central bank that prints it, is taking its last gasps as you read this. It is only a matter of time – and very soon – before the rug gets pulled and everyone is forced to adopt a central bank-controlled digital cryptocurrency (CBDC).
"The attacks might even be perpetrated by our very own deep state and blamed on China / Russia," someone else suggested. "They have motive, means, and opportunity and cannot be ruled out."
Another accurately observed that the planned destruction and genocide of humanity has been an operation in the works for many, many years now.
"It's been incremental genocide for at least 30 years," this person explained.
"Chemtrails, water fluoridation (leads to Alzheimer's and ADD), Roundup (glyphosate), GMOs, plastic containers (BHP and BPA), vaccines and flu shots. East Palestine created dioxin (half-life of nine years) which means at least two decades of permanent contamination of soil and water in at least a 200 mile radius."
The powers that be are trying to cut Americans off from their own food supply. More of the latest news about it can be found at Terrorism.news
