Procter & Gamble Co. (PG) - Get Procter & Gamble Company Report isn't giving in just yet.

The company will challenge the proxy vote recount that awarded activist investor Nelson Peltz a seat on the P&G board, according to a report from CNBC citing unnamed sources.

P&G notified independent inspector IVS Associates that it planned to "review" the count but wouldn't say it was challenging the results.

After P&G initially claimed victory last month, Peltz won the seat in a narrow recount by 43,000 votes, or 0.0016%, in an IVS tally. Advisers are now expected to review each contested vote to ensure it is legitimate.
