Nestle Shuts Down Plants in Egypt

Employs 3,000 people in three plants

Nestle said that it had "temporarily halted" operations in Egypt "due to the political unrest underway in the country."

Twenty expatriate staff and their families were evacuated from the country.

The food giant employs 3,000 people there in three plants.

Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians rallied on Feb. 1 for the biggest day of protests yet in their campaign to oust President Hosni Mubarak.
