According to WKYC in Cleveland, the Medina woman who died of salmonella poisoning from eating peanut butter has been identified as Nellie Napier.

The 80-year-old woman's death was the second in Ohio linked to salmonella and the ninth nationwide. The first Ohio death was in Summit County.

Napier, who died one month after her birthday on January 26, had six children.

More than 600 people in 44 states have become sick from the outbreak, which public health officials have linked to tainted peanut butter and peanut paste from a Peanut Corporation of America plant in Blakely, Ga. The Lynchburg, Va., company is under criminal investigation over allegations that it distributed the food even though it knew it was tainted. The company has since closed the plant.
