Salmonella Found in Ground Turkey [Updated 2x]
|Turkey meat is grounds for concern.|
Federal officials said the evidence found so far pointed to a single ground turkey factory, but they declined to identify it or the company involved.However, the meat processor Cargill said that it had been contacted by the Agriculture Department and asked to provide information as part of the salmonella investigation.
So far neither USDA nor CDC have been able to determine the producer of the ground turkey that has been causing the illnesses, but the investigation continues.The USDA advises you to cook and/or reheat ground turkey to 165 degrees. Gut Check advises you to opt for a light meal of, say, bread and fresh fruit instead of a turkey burger. It's too hot today to eat meat.
