Jennie-O recalling ground turkey in salmonella outbreak

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

"The U.S. Department of Agriculture knows more about the turkey products implicated in this outbreak than it is disclosing to the media or the American people", wrote Sarah Sorscher, CSPI's deputy director of regulatory affairs.

Jennie-O is recalling more than 91,000 pounds of ground turkey that may be linked to a salmonella outbreak.

But there hadn't been a recall of any products until Thursday, after the USDA, CDC and Arizona Department of Health Services did a traceback from a sample of Jennie-O ground turkey from the home of a salmonella sufferer. Due to this investigation, additional products may also be recalled.

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.

Those "use by" dates may seem like awhile ago. So far this year, the outbreak has resulted in one death and 164 reported illnesses in 35 states.

In addition to ground turkey, Salmonella has also been detected in raw turkey pet food and live turkeys, an indication the bacteria is widespread in the turkey industry.

Even a single episode of activity gives short-term benefits such as lowering blood pressure, reducing anxiety and improving sleep. The advice is similar for older adults , but activities should include things that promote balance to help avoid falls.

The CDC said that if you plan to handle raw turkey, make sure you are extra careful: Wash your hands after touching it. Cook products thoroughly to avoid getting sick. The agency says it has to be able to tie a specific product to illnesses before it can prompt a recall. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.

Until the contaminated brands of turkey have been identified - or in the longer term, the Food and Drug Administration takes action to protect the public's health by stopping unnecessary use of antibiotics in farm animals - here's how to reduce your risk of infection.

Officials said people should consume poultry products only if they have been cooked to a temperature of at least 165 degrees.

Most people get better within four to seven days without seeking medical attention, but sometimes the illness becomes so severe that those sickened with the illness require hospitalization.
