Dean Dairy

The milk giant Dean Foods is closing one of its Illinois facilities this year.

 

The Texas-based corporation's Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act letter says 131 people will lose their jobs when the Huntley dairy plant and office close in September. The layoffs will occur Sept. 14-28, The Northwest Herald reported.

Employees of the Huntley plant expressed disappointment, but declined to comment to the newspaper.
