ALBANY, P.E.I. -- Thirteen employees at the Atlantic Beef Products plant in Albany, P.E.I., have been given layoff notices.

Company president Shane Murphy says they are not immune to the current economic cli-mate and with fewer cattle coming to the plant changes were needed.

The plant will still have about 50 people working even with the reduction.

Murphy says many of the employees who have received lay-off notices will remain on the job, pending the return of others who are out on medical leave.
