AUSTIN - Texas has ordered Peanut Corp. of America to recall all products ever shipped from Plainview plant in West Texas.

The order came late Thursday from the Department of State Health Service as part of their ongoing investigation into the Salmonella outbreak.

The agency says "dead rodents, rodent excrement and bird feathers" were discovered Wednesday in a crawl space above a production area.

NewsWest 9 also learned last week that the plant operated for years un-inspected and unlicensed by state health officials.

The Associated Press contributed to parts of this report.
