Portales, NM - After getting approval from the FDA to continue operating, Sunland Inc. is hiring back some of its employees in Portales.

The peanut processing and peanut butter plant has been shut down since a massive recall in September.

Now the plant has permission from the Food and Drug administration, as well as sanitation experts to reopen.

A spokesperson for Sunland says the company hopes to be back in full operation by March.
