Butterball Turkey Recall

In March 2019, Butterball recalled approximately 78,000 pounds of raw ground turkey products that may be contaminated with Salmonella Schwarzengrund, according to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service.

What Butterball Turkey Products Were Recalled?

The recalled products are labeled with the establishment number “EST. P-7345” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The recalled packages of Butterball raw ground turkey was produced on July 7, 2018. Because the recalled products have a use-by date of July 26, 2018, it is unlikely that any of the turkey is still in stores, but it is possible that consumers may still have it in their freezers at home.
