The decision to close the Ford Avenue plant came from the "changing demand for certain specialty products," Tyson wrote in an email.
Tyson says most employees "are being offered permanent positions at other Tyson Foods locations" in Northwest Arkansas.
Mickelson said the plant employs around 60 people.
The Ford Avenue plant has been operating for more than 15 years, and it once served as a research and development pilot plant for the company.
According to the email, in more recent years, most of the products made at the plant have been relocated or consolidated to other facilities.
