|Turkey meat is grounds for concern.|
Original post and previous updates after the jump.
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.
The Times also reports that this strain of salmonella is resistant to antibiotics.
Make sure you cook your turkey burgers till they're well-done: The USDA has issued a public-health alert
after a salmonella outbreak in ground turkey
that has sickened at least 77 persons across 26 states, reports USA Today
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.
