West Fargo employer Smuckers said today that it plans to close its local production plant in April.

The plant, known for producing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches called Uncrustables, employs 141 workers.

"We have made the difficult decision to close the West Fargo plant and consolidate production to our manufacturing facility located in Scottsville, Ky.," said Maribeth Badertscher, vice president of corporate communications for the J.M. Smucker Co. based in Orrville, Ohio.

There was talk of closing the plant in 2006 but production demands kept it open.
