Production resumes at Indiana Toyota plant

Production work has resumed as planned at Toyota’s southwestern Indiana plant after a week-long shutdown for the company
to repair defective gas pedals.

Spokeswoman Kelly Dillon says the factory near Princeton was back to "business
as usual" when its lines restarted on Monday.

About 4,200 people work at the factory, making the Highlander
and Sequoia SUVs that are among the troubled models.

Dillon told the Evansville Courier & Press that the plant
had received a shipment of new accelerator pedals expected to fix the problem that led to the recall.

Toyota allowed
its employees report to the plant and do non-production work, take paid vacation time or take unpaid days off.
