Salmonella in turkey Just in time for Thanksgiving, the CDC is warning of a deadly turkey salmonella outbreak
| 19 November, 2018, 01:06

The CDC said the current strain of salmonella poisoning had been found in live turkeys, turkey pet food, and raw turkey products throughout Minnesota.

Jennie-O Turkey is recalling over 91,000 pounds of ground turkey in connection to one illness from salmonella.

The products included were produced on September 11, 2018 and shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The overall outbreak of an antibiotic-resistant strain of salmonella reading, ongoing since November 2017, has made at least 164 people ill, with a third having needed hospitalization, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) investigation notice on November 8.

We know that there are now 164 people from 35 states ill from this strain of Salmonella.

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. They say additional products from other companies could be named as their investigation continues.

Food safety officials stress safe handling of raw turkey

Salmonella in food is estimated to be responsible for 1 million illnesses a year, with symptoms including vomiting and stomach cramps. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most victims recover without treatment.

Ahead of Thanksgiving, and any other night you're planning on cooking a turkey, do not forget to thoroughly wash your hands. 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.

"In the meantime, it's important that consumers know they can purchase and safely consume these products", the USDA told The Journal News. Those with questions can call Jennie-O at 1-800-621-3505, 9 a.m.to 5 p.m., Eastern time, Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m.to 6 p.m., Eastern time, Saturday and Sunday. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from 10 a.m.to 6 p.m.
