Thanksgiving Warning: USDA Urged to Name Turkey Brands Linked to Salmonella Outbreak

Thanksgiving Warning: USDA Urged to Name Turkey Brands Linked to Salmonella Outbreak

This outbreak is a reminder that raw turkey products can have germs that spread around food preparation areas and can make you sick.

Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales' recall of 91,000 pounds of ground turkey products late Thursday night is the first supplier link to a salmonella outbreak that has sickened 164 people in 35 states and caused one death.

The products included were produced on September 11, 2018 and shipped to retail locations nationwide. Trace back investigations are conducted in the field through on the ground work, not Monday morning quarterbacking from the comforts of an urban high rise in New York City or K Street in Washington, D.C., with fundraising pleas attached. The person had Salmonellla Reading and the sample tested positive for a strain that matches the outbreak's strain.

The Food and Safety Inspection Division is continuing to investigate products associated with the outbreak and could soon name other companies to have products recalled. 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 products subject to recall bear establishment number "P-190" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Most people infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food. Most people infected with the bacteria recover within a week without treatment, but serious cases may require hospitalizations for invasive infections, such as meningitis and bloodstream infections.

Wash your hands after touching it.

Experts urge consumers to practice good food safety when handling raw turkey in the kitchen this holiday season.

"In the meantime, it's important that consumers know they can purchase and safely consume these products", the agency added.

Consumers can protect themselves by cooking their turkey, other poultry products, and meat thoroughly.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Jennie-O Consumer Engagement Team at 1-800-621-3505.
