A little hope for Yarnell's

Posted By on Fri, Jul 1, 2011 at 4:13 PM

There's a lot of stuff spinning out there on the Internet about what's happening with Yarnell's. But this seems to be of note.

Over on Facebook, there are already 279 people signed up for a page called "Bring Blue Bell to Yarnell's Plant in Searcy, AR." This afternoon, this note came across:

I've been trying to contact someone with Nestle to validate the information. Problem is, it's late on a Friday afternoon on a holiday weekend. Any other news tips out there?

UPDATE: Still no official word, but this comment on the Facebook page:

UPDATE: WREG confirms that Nestle will hire delivery drivers... but that it's not purchasing Yarnell's West Memphis facility.
