Ground Turkey Recall – Full List Of Brands Recalled [Video]

On Wednesday, major U.S. meat processor Cargill voluntarily recalled an estimated 36 million pounds of fresh and frozen ground turkey produced at an Arkansas plant after the meat was linked to a nationwide outbreak of salmonella.

Health authorities believe the poultry could be contaminated with Salmonella Heidelberg, a dangerous strain of salmonella that has brought illness to almost 80 people and killed a California man.

The contaminated turkey was product between Feb. 20 and Aug. 2 at the company’s Springdale, Arkansas factory. Cargill has suspended production at this factory.

“Given our concern for what has happened, and our desire to do what is right for our consumers and customers, we are voluntarily removing our ground turkey products from the marketplace,” Steve Willardsen, president of Cargill’s turkey processing business, said in a statement.

Samonella can cause fever, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and can be deadly to individuals who are young, old, as well as those with weak immune systems.

According to health officials, contaminated turkey meat is safe to eat if it is properly cooked at 165 degrees Fahrenheit with the temperature confirmed by a meat thermometer. They also have urged consumers to follow good food safety practices when using ground turkey, such as washing hands with warm, soapy water thoroughly before and after handling raw meat, and cleaning all cutting boards and other surfaces well.

The ground turkey was labeled under a variety of brand names. Here’s full list of products in this recall, as per the USDA:
