Is peanut recall overkill? And what's with Brett Favre?

The State of Texas wants every single product made by a plant recalled. It's supposed to protect people from Salmonella, but is that overkill?

State officials say they found dead rodents, rodent excrement and bird feathers in a crawl space above a production area at a closed peanut plant.

The facility is operated by Peanut Corp. of America, the same company that runs the Georgia plant responsible for the Salmonella outbreak.

Initial tests show likely Salmonella contamination, but it hasn't been confirmed.

So, is calling back every single product ever made at this plant a good idea? Or, are state officials overreacting?

Do you think such a massive recall will protect the public from more illness?

Brett Favre has called it quits for the second season in a row, and this time he says it's for good.

The future Hall of Fame quarterback informed the Jets Wednesday he's hanging up his jersey. He played 18 season in the NFL, a majority of them for the Green Bay Packers.

Favre made the same retirement announcement in March of last year, but then he changed his mind and created a major controversy. He was traded to the Jets and missed the play-offs by one game.

So, do you think he's done for good? If Favre changes his mind again, will another team take him?
