The King Nut Company has recalled Peanut Butter sold under it’s label this weekend, as a result of salmonila that was found in the Peanut Butter. This happened after the company said that salmonila was discovered in a large container of peanut butter.One death is reported in connection with the Salmonila in Minnesota.

Ohio-based King Nut acknowledged in a statement that salmonella had been found in an open 5-pound tub of King Nut peanut butter.

“We are very sorry this happened,” Martin Kanan, president of King Nut Companies, said in the statement. “We are taking immediate and voluntary action because the health and safety of those who use our products is always our highest priority.”

King Nut peanut butter was identified as the source of an outbreak that may have contributed to one death in Minnesota, state public health officials said Friday.

King Nut said Saturday that peanut butter sold under its label was manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America. The release gave no other details on the manufacturer, but Peanut Corporation of America’s Web site lists its headquarters as Lynchburg, Virginia, and says it has processing operations in Virginia, Georgia and Texas.

Peanut Corporation of America could not be immediately reached for comment.
