About 91,000 lbs. of Turkey Recalled Due to Salmonella Outbreak
A deadly Salmonella outbreak has caused the USDA to recall over 91,000 pounds of raw ground turkey.
Jennie-O Turkey recalled the products after a sample of its products tested positive for Salmonella. The recalled turkey products are from a production from September 11, 2018, and were shipped nationwide.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 165 people in 35 states have been affected by the outbreak. One person in California has died.
Here's a list of the raw ground turkey products that have been recalled:
- 1-lb. packages of "Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 93% LEAN | 7% FAT" with "Use by" dates of 10/01/2018 and 10/02/2018.
- 1-lb. packages of "Jennie-O TACO SEASONED GROUND TURKEY" with a "Use by" date of 10/02/2018.

The CDC recommends using care when handling and preparing turkey products. Wash your hands after preparing it, cook it thoroughly, and be sure to thaw turkey in the refrigerator rather than at room temperature.
