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

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

Jennie-O Turkey is recalling the ground turkey products due to an illness outbreak. In February, a pet food manufacturer in Minneapolis, Raw for Paws, recalled about 4,000 pounds of its ground turkey pet food after two children became sick after the pet food was fed to pets in their home. The more than 91,000 pounds of turkey had use-by dates of early October and shouldn't be in stores anymore, but could still be in freezers.

Regulators say the product should be thrown away.

No common supplier has been identified, according to officials at the Agriculture Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, so consumer groups are asking for the names of the brands and the slaughterhouses and processing facilities where the outbreak strain has been found in samples.

The strain is present in live turkeys as well as numerous raw turkey products, including food for humans and pets, which the CDC notes could mean the strain is widespread throughout the entire turkey industry.

With Thanksgiving approaching, the agency is reminding people that they should always properly handle and cook their turkeys to kill any possible salmonella.

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

The products subject to recall bear establishment number "P-190" inside the USDA mark of inspection. "CDC and USDA-FSIS have shared this information with representatives from the turkey industry and asked about steps that they may be taking to reduce Salmonella contamination".

"Most people get sick between 12 and 72 hours after coming into contact with salmonella bacteria", the CDC's Dr. Colin Basler told CBS News.

It's unclear where the turkey at the center of this outbreak came from, as there doesn't appear to be one centralized distributor, and the USDA is (somewhat controversially) not naming particular brands. Most people recover without treatment, although the infection is more serious for infants, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. No one should be eating partially cooked or raw turkey.
