Rethink That Burger: Another 185K Pounds of Ground Turkey Recalled
Cargill has announced a new recall affecting 185,000 pounds of their ground turkey following increased concerns about salmonella contamination.
The recall affects three kinds of ground turkey products: Fresh Ground Turkey Chubs, Fresh Ground Turkey Trays, and Fresh Ground Turkey Patties. Those items are packaged and sold under the Honeysuckle White and Kroger labels.
The products subject to recall today bear the establishment number "P-963" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on August 23, 24, 30 and 31 of this year.
In August, Cargill issued a massive recall of 36 million pounds of their ground turkey, after their products were linked to illness in numerous states, including the death of a California resident. So far, none of the products under this new recall have been linked to illness. The company explains:
Cargill is initiating this recall as a result of one confirmed test sample taken by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) during a post-August 3 recall review of the processing facility, which yielded low levels of the same Salmonella Heidelberg strain that appears to match the strain previously associated with human illness.
