Just recently there was a recall on ground beef....now, as of yesterday, Butterball (a N.C. based company) is recalling approximately 78,164 pounds of raw ground turkey products that may be contaminated with Salmonella Schwarzengrund, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The prepacked raw ground turkey was produced on July 7th, 2018 and may affect numerous products-- in various sizes, including some "store brand" meats as well.
The turkey was shipped nation wide, and it was discovered there may be an issue when 5 cases from 2 states were observed.
Common symptoms of Salmonella include: diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.
Please check your refrigerators and freezers! If you do have some, either throw it away or return to place of purchase.
