USDA Recalls Raw Ground Turkey Over Dangerous Salmonella Outbreak

USDA Recalls Raw Ground Turkey Over Dangerous Salmonella Outbreak

The ongoing hunt has found the salmonella strain in raw turkey pet food, ground turkey, turkey patties, and in live turkeys, indicating "it might be widespread in the turkey industry".

The USDA has issued a recall on more than 91,000 pounds of Jennie-O turkey products that may be associated with a salmonella outbreak.

The recall came one week before Thanksgiving - and one day after Consumer Reports called on the agency to disclose which company or companies have been linked to a recent salmonella outbreak that has sickened more than 160 people in 35 states and killed at least one person. Our public health partners have interviewed case patients, and 64% of those patients report eating turkey products.

The CDC notes that a single, common supplier of live turkeys and raw turkey products has not been identified. 7 percent FAT with "use by" dates 10/01/2018 and 10/02/2018.

Jennie-O Italian seasoned ground turkey (all with "use by" dates of October 2, 2018). "15% FAT"; and "Jennie-O ITALIAN SEASONED GROUND TURKEY".

Jennie-O is recalling more than 90,000 pounds of ground turkey that could be contaminated with salmonella.

Most patients recover in less than a week, but in other cases hospitalization is required, and infections caused by salmonella can be more serious.

Salmonella in food is estimated to be responsible for 1 million illnesses a year. Though most of the people respond to the treatment, the ailment remains in the body for 4 to 7 days. One person in California died, and 63 people have been hospitalized, CNN reported.

One concern is that consumers may have contaminated products in their freezers. Instead, the USDA says consumers should throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.

Wash your hands with warm water and soap before and after handling raw meat. In the meantime, it's important that consumers know they can purchase and safely consume these products.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

The CDC also recommends not feeding your pet raw meat products. "Never thaw foods on the counter, because bacteria multiply quickly in the parts of the food that reach room temperature".
