(TMZ) - Paula Deen can't apologize enough to stop the bleeding - Kmart and Sears are now cutting ties with her in the wake of the n-word controversy, TMZ has learned.

Sears Holdings - owner of Sears and Kmart stores - tells TMZ, "After careful consideration of all available information, we have made the decision to phase out all products tied to [Paula Deen's] brand."

But the retail giants - which carry Deen's cookware and dishware lines - seem to be guilty of a little fence-sitting, because they added, "We will continue to evaluate the situation."

Yesterday Home Depot, Target, and QVC also jumped ship ... following the Food Network's lead.
