Diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk and Target distance themselves from Paula Deen

"Novo Nordisk and Paula Deen have mutually agreed to suspend our patient education activities for now, while she takes time to focus her attention where it is needed,'' the company said in a statement. "Novo Nordisk would like to acknowledge Paula’s involvement in our 'Diabetes in a New Light' campaign, where she has helped make many people aware of type 2 diabetes and the lifestyle changes needed to control this serious disease."

Target announced that it is severing its relationship with Deen entirely.

"We have made a decision to phase out the Paula Deen merchandise in our stores as well as on Target.com,'' the company said in a statement. "Once the merchandise is sold out, we will not be replenishing inventory."

The latest announcements came after Wal-Mart and Home Depot announced on Wednesday that they were severing ties with her.
