SMUCKER TO CLOSE PLANT

J.M. Smucker Co. said Monday it plans to close a California processing plant and cut other U.S. jobs as part of restructuring efforts.

It was not immediately clear how many of Smucker's 4,500 employees would face unemployment.

In a statement released after the stock market closed, Smucker said the cuts fit its strategy of focusing on leading brands and will improve its finances.
