Yesterday, we reported that production at the ConAgra facility where Slim Jims are manufactured will not resume until fall due to damage from the horrific explosion in June. This information is incorrect. Employees will return to work on July 19, and production will resume on July 27. [WRAL] (Thanks, Lon!)

    Interesting that they can run production for 22 days without any employees. They must use a fully automated dried sausage stick pump. Come to think of it, I could use one of those, myself.

    Not to be all nitpicky about it, but it’s probably July 27, and not June 27.

    My local Wawa hasn’t had my favorite type of Slim Jim recently… I wonder if this is why. (Yes, Slim Jim actually makes a product or two that taste good and aren’t horribly unhealthy)

    Oh thank God. The great Slim Jim shortage of 09 was really testing my patience. I’ve had to susbstitute dehydrated oversalted nitrided rats! Seriously, it was the only thing that tasted the same.

    Thank you, oh, Thank you great Snack God. I will erect a temple made out of Slim Jims in your honor!

    I bailed on Slim Jims a year or two ago when it seemed like they changed the receipe….
