This "story" originates from Mike Adams (The Rump Ranger) and cannot be independently confirmed by either Augason's website or their Facebook page. The only suspension they mention is a moratorium on processing online orders through their website while still servicing their wholesale customers. This is Adams' moneymaking scheme in full operation yet again. He takes a legitimate story, tweaks it to sensationalize it, and then sells it through his numerous outlets. He also sells long-term storage foods and would love you be be spooked into buying his overpriced shit! He's the asshole King of Clickbait!The source is Natural News (), but in this case, I give the story credence. Have been waiting to see such announcements. The prep food industry is going to see supply and labor problems just like everybody else.
HERE'S THE NOTICE (aka The Truth) FROM AUGASON'S WEBSITE:
"Due to an extremely high order volume through all sales channels we are currently not able to receive any orders through our web site. All orders previously placed will still be shipped. Augason Farms Products are still available through other national sales channels both on line and in-store and also through other reputable on-line vendors. We expect to turn this site back on just as soon as possible. As a manufacturer we are intent on making sure our vendors inventory is top priority. Thank-you for choosing Augason Farms."
