In good news for Chicago but bad news for other parts of the country, Kraft Heinz will close seven manufacturing plants in the U.S. and Canada, resulting in some 2,600 layoffs, and move the headquarters of its U.S. meats business to Chicago from Madison, Wis.

The company, co-headquartered in Northfield and Pittsburgh, said it will shutter its 300-employee, Madison-based Oscar Mayer unit and move the headquarters and most of the employees in its U.S. meats business to Chicago early next year, bringing 250 jobs to the city.
