SYLACAUGA, Ala. (AP) -- Fertilizer producer United Industries Corp. will close its plant in Sylacauga on Jan. 31, leaving 77 full-time employees without jobs. It is also closing its administrative office in Birmingham, eliminating 30 additional jobs.

Spectrum Brands Inc. announced in a Nov. 11 press release that it planned to eliminate "unprofitable products," and the company's board of directors approved shutting down a segment of its home and garden business that includes fertilizers.

Calvin Miller, director of the Talladega County Economic Development Authority, told The Daily Home in a story Tuesday that it could be difficult for people to be absorbed into the local work force with the current economic climate.
