Print | Front Page | Email this story

NEW YORK (AP) — Blue Apron is closing a facility in New Jersey that puts together and ships out its ready-to-cook meal kits, and says that about 470 workers may lose their jobs if they don't chose to transfer to another facility in the state.

The meal-kit seller, which became a public company about a month ago, says it offered the 1,270 employees at a Jersey City, New Jersey, site the option to transfer to a new facility in Linden, New Jersey.

The New York-based company says about 800 workers have asked to transfer and it expects more to do so before the October deadline.

Blue Apron Holdings Inc.'s stock fell 6 percent to close at $5.83 Friday. Its shares are down 42 percent since they began trading publicly at the end of June.
