Contaminated celery linked to Texas plant

SAN ANTONIO - Tests by federal health authorities have found listeria bacteria at a Texas food processing plant after state health officials linked four deaths to contaminated celery from the facility.

The Food and Drug Administration says the results released Wednesday match testing done by the Texas Department of State Health Services at the SanGar Produce & Processing Co. plant in San Antonio.

The tests found listeria bacteria in multiple locations in the plant.

State health authorities closed the plant Oct. 20 and ordered SanGar to recall all produce that had passed through the facility since January.

Messages left for an attorney for SanGar by The Associated Press were not immediately returned.
