SALMONELLA OUTBREAK


From 'Meat-Free Mondays' (http://meatfreemondays.com):

Fyi: I removed the raw turkey photo before pasting this
article on here because it wasn't the most appetizing food
image to start the day with!

Salmonella outbreak in turkey meat leads to massive US recall
One person has died and almost 80 people have been taken 
ill following an outbreak of salmonella in US turkey meat.

Food giant Cargill recalled 36 million pounds of turkey 

mince from its Arkansas plant last week, one of the largest 
recalls in history. The US Centers for the Disease Control and 
Prevention said the antibiotic-resistant Heidelberg strain of 
salmonella was responsible for the outbreak. Steve 
Willardsen, president of Cargill’s turkey wing, said in a 
statement that it was “regrettable” that so many people 
had fallen ill as a result of its products. “For anyone who did, 
we are truly sorry,” he said. Some of products containing the 
contaminated turkey mince were marketed under the 
Honeysuckle White brand. Mince produced at Cargill’s 
Arkansas plant since late February has been recalled. 
Salmonella is present in 10-15 per cent of ground turkey 
products, according to US data, more than three-quarters of 
which are antibiotic-resistant strains.
