A recent salmonella outbreak has sickened more than 164 people in 35 states. At least one person has died from the outbreak.


On Thursday, in response to the outbreak, the US Department of Agriculture issued a recall of 91,388 pounds of raw ground turkey product. The company that makes them is Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales.

A week ahead of Thanksgiving, the Barron, Wisconsin company Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales has faced a major blow with their products being recalled. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said the company’s turkey products might be associated with the salmonella outbreak.

The USDA revealed that its Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) unit was “continuing to investigate illnesses associated with this widespread outbreak, and additional product from other companies may also be recalled.”


For more on this story go to our Twitter account @amomama_usa. The raw ground turkey products items were produced on September 11, according to the department.

The items which were recalled were:

Jennie-O Ground Turkey 93% Lean – 7% fat, Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey, Ground Turkey 85% Lean – 15% fat, and Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey. They are all one pound packages with “Use By” dates of October 2 and October 1 for the 93% Lean product.


The products also bear the establishment number “P-190” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The department said these items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

One patient tested positive for salmonella from a Jeannie-O ground turkey sample. The strain that was found in the patient and product matches the outbreak strain.

Eating food that is contaminated with salmonella can cause salmonellosis which is a bacterial foodborne illness. The most common symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product.


The department said the illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days with most people recovering without treatment. However, in some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized.


The FSIS was concerned that some of the infected products may be frozen in consumers’ freezers. They urged consumers who’ve purchased these products to not consume them.

The products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. Anyone who has questions regarding the recall can contact the Jennie-O Consumer Engagement Team at 1-800-621-3505.

Another recall that has happened this month is from Duncan Hines. They recalled Classic White, Classic Butter Golden, Signature Confetti, and Classic Yellow cake mixes because of a salmonella concern.

There’ve been at least five confirmed cases of salmonella relating to this recall.
