The Missouri Department of Agriculture has temporarily shut down a Mexico, Missouri meat locker.

An inspection today at Mexico Meat and Produce on Liberty turned up unsanitary conditions.

The agriculture department says it will wait for the owners to request a re-inspection before allowing the facility to re-open.

The suspension affects custom meat processing done for livestock owners, not for retail sales.
