First Brand Named in Turkey Salmonella Outbreak

Images show packaging for four types of Jennie-O ground raw turkey recalled due to salmonella concerns

The samples used in the USDA's test came from a September 11, 2018, production.

The USDA and FSIS announced the recall Thursday for more than 91,000 lbs. of Jennie-O ground turkey, in four varieties.

Jennie-O Turkey Store consumers with questions about the recall or about cooking raw turkey can contact the company's consumer engagement team at https://www.jennieo.com/contactus or at 1-800-621-3505 from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, their public health partners have been conducting traceback activities for a sample of Jennie-O brand ground turkey in an intact, unopened package from a case-patient's home.

But the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, which is monitoring the outbreak, said in a statement that it would be "grossly irresponsible and reckless" to identify the brands or name the companies that operate the facilities "when a link from an establishment to an illness has not been made". "The outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading is present in live turkeys and in many types of raw turkey products, indicating it might be widespread in the turkey industry".




Officials say the investigation is still underway, and more products could be recalled.

"In the meantime, it's important that consumers know they can purchase and safely consume these products", the agency added. Based on the continuing investigation, additional product from other companies may also be recalled. It has been suggested cooking the food items thoroughly at a high temperature. The strain in those samples is closely related to the strain found in sick people, providing more evidence that people were sickened from preparing raw turkey products, according to the CDC.

Wash your hands with warm water and soap before and after handling raw meat. Most stores have disposable meat, pork or poultry thermometers. "This outbreak is a reminder that raw turkey products can have germs that spread around food preparation areas and can make you sick". (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. The online Electronic Consumer Complaint Monitoring System can be accessed 24 hours a day at: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/reportproblem.

Class III This is a situation where the use of the product will not cause adverse health consequences.
