ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More food companies and retailers are pulling items with peanut butter amid a salmonella outbreak that has killed at least six people and sickened more than 470 others in 43 states.

General Mills and grocers Kroger and Meijer are the latest additions to the list. The Food and Drug Administration has traced the outbreak to a Georgia plant owned by Peanut Corporation of America.

Tuesday Peanut Corporation of America spokesman George Clark said they are trying to transfer some of the Blakely plants operations to Texas to fill customers orders. Clark said FDA Investigators were back at the plant today to continue their investigation that started January 16th.
