More companies are cutting ties with beleaguered ex-Food Network star Paula Deen: Sears, Kmart, and Walgreens are all out. Sears Holdings, which owns both Sears and Kmart, told TMZ: "After careful consideration of all available information, we have made the decision to phase out all products tied to [Paula Deen's] brand." And Walgreens — which owns Duane Reade and Drugstore.com — tells HuffPo that they're also "phasing out" their Deen inventory.
Major partners of Deen's who have yet to comment on the scandal are JCPenney, which sells Deen's cookware, and Ballantine, which produces her cookbooks. (Although looking at how her upcoming cookbook is doing right now, one can probably guess where Ballantine stands.) Check out the current standings on the rest of her endorsement deals here.
