Texas is ordering the recall of all products shipped from the now closed Peanut Corp of America plant in Plainview.
The order came late Thursday from the Department of State Health Services as part of the investigation into a deadly nationwide salmonella outbreak. The agency says they discovered dead rodents, excrement and bird feathers on Wednesday in a crawl space above a production area. The state inspection also found that the units air handling system pulled debris from the infested crawl space into production areas.
The plant began operating in March of 2005, but the company called for the shut down earlier this week.
