91K pounds of Jennie-O turkey recalled due to salmonella outbreak

USDA won’t name turkey plants despite 164 illnesses and 1 death
By Coral Beach

The United State Department of Agriculture has issued a recall of more than 91,000 pounds of raw ground turkey due to a possible salmonella outbreak.

And consumers with Jennie-O Ground Turkey 93% Lean, Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey, Ground Turkey 85% Lean and Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey in their freezers should toss them out or return them to the store for a full refund.

The products bear establishment number "P-190" inside the USDA mark of inspection and were sent to retail locations nationwide. Since then, more people have gotten sick, bringing the total to at least 164 in 35 states.

Flashback: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced an outbreak of salmonella in raw turkey back in July.

Salmonella in food is estimated to be responsible for 1 million illnesses a year, with symptoms including vomiting and stomach cramps.

"It is the responsibility of the government to ensure that the turkeys headed for our Thanksgiving tables do not harbor antibiotic-resistant bacteria that have caused human illness and death".

Since the investigation began in February, state public health officials have been interviewing patients, looking at grocery receipts and shopper card data, and testing any turkey products that they had in their homes to search for a common supplier.

The CDC is urging consumers to practice safe preparation and cooking, including washing hands frequently when handling raw products, cleaning food preparation areas thoroughly, and cooking meat to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. One person died in California and 63 people have gone to the hospital, CNN reported. Regulators say it should be thrown away.

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.

FSIS cautions that Salmonella is prevalent and can be present in raw poultry and meat and that no raw poultry or meat is sterile. The guidelines include thawing frozen turkey on a plate separate from other foods in order to catch any liquid and contain any potential cross-contamination. So, it's important to pay close attention to what you're doing before you cook the turkey.
