In March, Joe Biden warned Americans that food shortages are “going to be real.” But there is more at play than the supply chain’s comedy of errors and Russian sanctions. Over the past 6 months, more than 20 raging fires have swallowed major food sourcing locations across the United States and Canada.

The FBI ominously warns that nefarious cyber criminals may be pulling the strings. According to the FBI’s own report:

“Ransomware actors may be more likely to attack agricultural cooperatives during critical planting and harvest seasons, disrupting operations, causing financial loss, and negatively impacting the food supply chain. The FBI noted ransomware attacks during these seasons against six grain cooperatives during the fall 2021 harvest and two attacks in early 2022 that could impact the planting season by disrupting the supply of seeds and fertilizer.”

The agency warned suppliers that an attack on such time-sensitive systems could undermine the entire supply chain. Note, there’s no direct evidence or reason to believe that the massive amount of recent fires were caused by cyber-attacks. However, the coincidence is still notable.

Let’s dive into some of the recent fires that hit specifically food supply chain facilities in the past 4 months:

Taylor Farms in Salinas, California burst into flames around 7pm on April 13th. The 225,000-square-foot building was severely damaged and more than 100 firefighters fought to contain the inferno. Salinas Fire Chief Michele Vaughn warned that the 35,000 pounds of ammonia on site could have led to a nightmarish hazmat threat. Visit the King City Rustler for more and pictures.

Oregon’s Azure Standard liquid processing facility burned to the ground on April 19th. The fire started in a tote of corn that was temporarily stored at the facility. Maple Hill Homestead breaks down the whole story here.

In Conway, New Hampshire on April 18th at 6:45pm, a massive fire engulfed a meat facility. East Conway Beef and Pork was completely destroyed. Fire crews spent 16 hours on the scene fighting the blaze. There is still no update on how the fire started. Read more on WMTW.

A plane crashed into Gem State Processing in Heyburn, Idaho at around 8:35am on April 13th. The pilot died in the crash according to police. The plane was single engine and traveling from Salt Lake City to Burley Municipal Airport in Idaho. Instead, it crashed into the processing facility for 18,000 acres of Idaho potatoes. Read more on the Idaho Statesman.

A major Walmart facility burst into flames on March 16th. Nearly 1,000 people were in the building when the fire broke out. The fulfillment center in Plainfield, Indiana will shut down permanently from the fire. Nearly 1,100 employees may lose their jobs permanently. Read more on WTHR.

A Nestle Hot Pockets plant in Jonesboro, Arkansas caught fire on March 16th. The facility was still shut down as of March 21st. More from Meat and Poultry.

Several other facilities were damaged or destroyed including the following:

Rio Fresh in South Texas

Maricopa Food Pantry where over 5,000 pounds of food went up in flames

Shearers Foods in Hermiston, Oregon

Bonanza Meat Company in El Paso, Texas

Wisconsin River Meats in Mauston, Wisconsin

Harper’s Market in Hamilton, Canada

Washington Potato Company in Warden, Washington

Cargill-Nutrena Feed Mill in Lecompte, Louisiana the fire was started by a massive explosion and burned for 12 hours

Van Drunen Farms facility in Momence, Illinois

These are only several of many more. It’s astounding that they’ve gotten so little media coverage. Regardless of whether or not they were started by rogue actors or are connected in any way, they will undeniably affect prices on our shelves.

This seems to be just another log on the fire these days. What are your thoughts? Is there any reason to believe the FBI’s warning might be connected to these fires? Is it all just a random fluke? How can the United States food economy recover from this heavy blow? Leave a comment down below.


  1. Every negative act of treasonous crimes to internally destroy U.S. Freedom, Rights & National is a biden, bo wannabe dictator insurrection for nwo commie, islamic terrorist power to enslave ! Every dem treasonous crime started with bo’s 8 years & now illegal 3rd term biden, bo treason being the #1 enemy within U.S.A. to be eliminated in 2022 to save Freedom, Rights and Liberty !

  2. Globalist agenda, depopulation! The elitists want to bring down the population of the world and they are attempting to do anything they can to accomplish their mission. I guess the NWO figures they can manipulate a smaller population.
    The food shortages are a socialist plot to unite everyone in the world under a world leader. Can anybody say “anti christ”?

  3. Do you think that these fires, & explosions, are accidents? Do you think that they are deliberate, & for the reason, of wiping out our food supply? Do you think that they are just a fluke? What do you think is really going on?

  4. My thought are that these are no accidents.Something very sinister is going on but I cannot be convinced that foul play is not involved. Yes it would be advantageous to Russia or China to be behind the sabotages(that’s what it is I think),but my thoughts are much more sinister than that. I feel the radicals of the liberals are behind it. We are destined at this point to suffer severe shortages and these plants shut down will add to them. These are also manmade shortages. Seems many liberals are too dumb to realize they also will be affected but are willing to suffer just to inflict pain on the innocent public. Madness. Noless


  6. Maybe the fires, etc were intentional? Has everyone forgotten we now have open borders with this administration, and illegal aliens have been distributed throughout the United States and/or have escaped to various destinations so we have no idea who may have been sent here to destroy our country.

  7. Yet another “coincidence” that Mr. Gates will profit hugely from, with his recent purchase of huge swaths of farm and ranch land across the USA. SUCH a LUCKY billionaire, coincidentally profiting from so many catastrophic events that hurt so many people.


  9. It’s a rogue corrupt FBI and these fires are deliberate to make it impossible for Americans to survive well.God is in control till the End. My FBI patient told me before he died. Please Carol do not trust th FBI now they are corrupt

  10. It is not a coincidence that they are ALL food processing plants. It is a coordinated attack on the food supply by the radical left and elite globalists. When food supplies dwindle, hysteria will abound fulfilling the quest to kill the population in masse. This extreme evil must be vanquished instead.

  11. Hi, I definitely don’t think this is a fluke when it Concerns Food processing industry. There’s people in the background Who have plans of controlling the food Supply. The elite are buying up large quantities of farmland So they can manufacture the food And be the supplier! Maybe look into gates In his mess purchasing of large quantity of land Throughout the country. That’s just one of them. Could it be cyber attacks? Definitely carefully orchestrated! The question behind it is who’s paying For the destruction of these Processing plants. Another thing to keep in mind you have socialist/Communist trying to take over this country. You may want to consider looking at the democrats when talking about this. It’s all about control!!

  12. These food plants need to place snipers around their facilities and take out any unwanted intruders.

  13. Appears that most of the facilities burned to the ground. Takes a wide-spread accelerant to bring down these massive processing facilities.
