JBS USA, subsidiary of Brazilian firm JBS SA, confirmed in a statement on Wednesday the company paid the equivalent of $11 million in ransom in response to a criminal hack against its operations.

The world’s largest meat producer canceled shifts at its U.S. and Canadian meat plants last week, after JBS said it was hit with a crippling cyberattack that threatened to disrupt food supply chains and inflate food prices. Reporting by Aishwarya Nair in Bengaluru; Editing by Chris Reese
