Australian and North American units of the world’s largest meat works were hit over the weekend by an organised cyberattack on its information systems, Brazil’s JBS SA said in a statement.

The attack caused its Australian operations to shut down on Monday. The company said it was working to resolve the incident.

“On Sunday, May 30, JBS USA determined that it was the target of an organised cybersecurity attack, affecting some of the servers supporting its North American and Australian IT systems,” it said in a statement released Monday afternoon, US time.

“Resolution of the incident will take time, which may delay certain transactions with customers and suppliers.”

The attack shut down operations across several Australian states, JBS Australia Chief Executive Officer Brent Eastwood told industry news website Beefcentral on Sunday, at which time he was not able to say how long the stoppage would last.

The world’s largest meatpacker has operations in Canada and the United States, which on Monday marked the US Memorial Day public holiday.

Australian meat processing operations would be impossible without normal access to IT and Internet systems, according to the Beefcentral report. JBS’s Primo Smallgoods business in Queensland state has also been affected, the report said.
