Jennie-O Turkey Recall

On November 15, 2018 Jennie-O recalled approximately 91,000 pounds of raw ground turkey (including 85% lean, 95% lean, taco seasoned, and Italian seasoned) because it is linked to a Salmonella outbreak, according to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).

What Turkey Was Recalled for Salmonella?

Jennie-O recalled raw ground turkey products that were produced on September 11, 2018 and marked with establishment number “P-190” inside the USDA mark of inspection, and shipped to stores nationwide.

  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 93% LEAN | 7% FAT” with “Use by” dates of 10/01/2018 and 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O TACO SEASONED GROUND TURKEY” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 85% LEAN | 15% FAT” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O ITALIAN SEASONED GROUND TURKEY” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.

What is the Problem?

Health officials in Arizona tested an intact, unopened package of Jennie-O® ground turkey from a sick person’s home. The turkey tested positive for the outbreak strain of Salmonella, which was the same strain of Salmonella that made the person sick.

Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Turkey

At least 164 people in 35 states have been infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading, including 1 person in California who died. The victims ate or handled many different types of turkey products, including raw ground turkey, turkey patties, live turkeys, and raw turkey pet food, suggesting Salmonella is widespread.

Symptoms of Salmonella Food Poisoning

Salmonella bacteria can cause food poisoning within 12 to 72 hours. The illness usually lasts about a week, with symptoms such as fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea.

“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.
