Why Walmart Is Still Stocking Paul Deen Products

Deen is looking to continue her business independently

   

Walmart (WMT) is still stocked with some Paula Deen products despite dropping her after she admitted to using racial slurs.

USA Today reports that the retailer cut ties with the cooking star in July but the company expects to have her cookware until the end of the year. A lot of these items will be sold at clearance prices and Walmart is expected to have them until they run out of stock.

The retailer still has a Paula Deen section on their website that features her products. The Southern cooking celebrity also lost her show with the Food Network and several other partnerships after she used racial slurs.

Deen is looking to continue her business independently as her website has several of her items listed.
