NEW YORK - Retailers Target Corp. and Home Depot Inc. and diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk became the latest companies to sever ties or distance themselves from celebrity cook Paula Deen as fallout builds from revelations that she used racial slurs in the past.

Target said Thursday that it will phase out its Paula Deen-branded cookware and other items, which were sold on its website and in its stores.

Home Depot, which sold Paula Deen-branded cookware and kitchen products only online, said it pulled the products off its website Wednesday.

Diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk said Thursday it and Deen have "mutually agreed to suspend our patient education activities for now."

The developments are the latest blow to Deen's business.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world's largest retailer, said Wednesday that it's also cutting ties with Deen.
