Salmonella poisoning involving ground turkey has led to what is now the third-largest meat recall in U.S. history. Cargill, Inc., has recalled 36 million pounds of ground turkey across the U.S. due to Salmonella poisoning.
Nearly 80 victims from 26 states have been infected, and one person has died. People infected with Salmonella poisoning can suffer symptoms ranging from upset stomach and diarrhea to other flu-like symptoms including fever and severe illness.
According to Newswise:
“This recall affects more than 25 different types of fresh and frozen ground turkey products produced at Cargill Inc.’s Springdale, Arkansas plant between Feb. 20 and Aug. 2. All packages contain the code ‘Est. P-963,’ according to Cargill.”
