PLAINVIEW, TEXAS — The Peanut Corporation of America has suspended operations at its Plainview, Texas, processing facility while the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Food and Drug Administration complete their investigation of the plant’s procedures and records of food safety. The facility is operated by a subsidiary, Plainview Peanut Co.

The P.C.A., which has taken the voluntary action to cooperate with the T.D.S.H.S. during its food safety investigation, closed its Blakely, Ga., plant last month after it was identified as the source of a nationwide Salmonella outbreak.
