Shuttered Texas food plant awaits results from FDA

SAN ANTONIO, TX (AP) - A Food and Drug Administration official says results of tests done at a Texas food processing company shuttered by state health authorities after contaminated celery was linked to four deaths won't come Friday.

Sherri McGarry of the FDA said analysis of samples taken Oct. 15 at SanGar Produce & Processing Co. isn't complete. She did not know when the results would be available.

The company had hoped to receive FDA's results as early as Friday.

An independent lab hired by the company is also doing tests to prove that the Texas health officials had wrongly traced listeria to the plant, where it cuts up and processes fruit and vegetables.

Texas officials shut down the plant Wednesday and ordered the company to recall all the produce that has passed through the plant since January.
