Oh, DEER! 

 

Due to the outbreak of Chronic Wasting Disease in the deer population in Arkansas, Floyds has
decided to NO LONGER PROCESS DEER OR WILD GAME OF ANY TYPE.
 
This is a dangerous disease and can be transmitted to other meats, other animals and cannot be contained or stopped by chlorine bleach or any other type of disinfectant.
 
We choose not to put our customers, our food or our equipment at risk for cross contamination.
There is no cure for this disease and it cannot easily be detected in any way.
 
Cooking the meat does not kill this disease.
 
We apologize to our long time deer customers for quitting a service we provided to them for close
to 40 years, but it is very important to us to protect not only our shop, our food, our customers and
our food chain.
 
.NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.
 
Thank you for trusting Floyd's for your deer processing business over the years.
