Oil-Dri says as many as 40 workers in Mounds will be affected, although some employees might be considered for transfers to Mississippi.

The company says it still plans to produce its animal health and nutrition lines in Mounds.

Oil-Dri has two facilities in Tippah County, Miss. As of last year, the company had 150 employees in Blue Mountain and Ripley. The company last year finished a $9 million expansion and upgrade at the Blue Mountain plant.

The company makes Cat's Pride cat litter. It began manufacturing in Tippah County in 1963.

Oil-Dri said Wednesday that it will shift its industrial floor absorbent and cat litter product manufacturing to Tippah County.
