MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 24 (UPI) --

Health officials have linked a third death in Minnesota to a Salmonella outbreak that has affected 43 states and claimed seven lives nationwide.

The Minnesota Health Department said the latest victim was a woman in her 80s living in a long-term care facility, the Star Tribune reported Saturday. Her name, where she was living and the date of her death were not released, the Minneapolis newspaper said.

The two other Minnesotans who died after testing positive for the Salmonella strain lived in nursing homes in Brainerd that had served peanut butter later found to contain the bacteria. All three had other medical problems and health officials have not confirmed whether Salmonella killed them.

Several food companies have recalled about 200 products containing a peanut butter product that came from a Peanut Corp. of America plant in Georgia suspected to be the source of the contamination.
