‚ÄčEL PASO - Bruce Foods Corp. plans to lay off 171 workers from its food-canning plant in Northeast El Paso.

The layoffs are due to Louisiana-based Bruce Foods selling its Mexican foods brands to California-based Teasdale Foods.

The El Paso plant, located at 8000 Ashley Rd., will remain open.

The layoffs are scheduled to begin around May 2 and will be completed by May 16, reported Pat Rocha, plant general manager.

The El Paso plant employs as many as 500 people during its peak canning season in the summer.
