Jennie-O Recalls 164,000 Pounds of Ground Turkey on Salmonella Fears

Minnesota-based Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales is recalling 164,210 pounds of raw ground turkey products potentially contaminated with salmonella, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Friday.

According to a notice posted on the FSIS site, the turkey products were produced between Oct. 22 and Oct 23 and shipped to retailers nationwide. All bear establishment number EST. P-579 inside the USDA inspection mark or on the side of the tray.

According to FSIS, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have tied the tainted turkey to "an illness cluster involving 216 case-patients in 38 states and the District of Columbia. Patients have reported eating different types and brands of turkey products purchased from many different stores, handling raw turkey pet food and/or raw turkey, or working with live turkeys or living with someone who handled live turkeys."

For a full list of recalled products, head to fsis.usda.gov and click on the "Recalls and Public Health Alerts" page.

FSIS said that, "based on the continuing investigation, additional product from other companies may also be recalled."

The salmonella bacterium can cause a serious gastrointestinal infection called salmonellosis. Common symptoms are "diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days," FSIS said.
