Possible salmonella outbreak triggers recall of 91000 pounds of

USDA won’t name turkey plants despite 164 illnesses and 1 death
By Coral Beach

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) responded Thursday, stating that the agency had not identified the source of the outbreak and criticized the organizations calling for the agency to name turkey suppliers without hard evidence of a link to the illness.

The recall is the first tied to an outbreak the U.S. Department of Agriculture says is widespread.

The CDC is "NOT advising that consumers avoid eating properly cooked turkey products, or that retailers stop selling raw turkey products", the agency states on its website.

"The U.S. Department of Agriculture knows more about the turkey products implicated in this outbreak than it is disclosing to the media or the American people", wrote Sarah Sorscher, CSPI's deputy director of regulatory affairs.

The samples used in the USDA's test came from a September 11, 2018, production. They all have use by dates of October 1, 2018, or October 2, 2018.

Those "use by" dates may seem like awhile ago.

World Antibiotic Awareness Week
There simply aren't enough new antibiotics being developed to battle increasingly drug resistant bacteria . Do not take a swab or use antibiotics for the management of a leg ulcer without clinical infection.

The recall affects four different types of Jennie-O turkey: Taco Seasoned, Italian Seasoned, 85% Lean, and 93% Lean. "15% FAT" with a "Use by" date of 10/02/2018. Regulators say the product should be thrown away.

Consumption of food contaminated with salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses.

Until the contaminated brands of turkey have been identified - or in the longer term, the Food and Drug Administration takes action to protect the public's health by stopping unnecessary use of antibiotics in farm animals - here's how to reduce your risk of infection.

As of November 5, 164 people across 35 states came down with salmonella poisoning, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Tests showed that it's also been in live turkeys and pet food. Though most of the people respond to the treatment, the ailment remains in the body for 4 to 7 days.

"Most people get sick between 12 and 72 hours after coming into contact with salmonella bacteria", the CDC's Dr. Colin Basler told CBS News. "If we had specific products that we could alert consumers to with a Public Health Alert, we would issue one".

"Be sure to thoroughly wash hands, counters, cutting boards, and utensils with warm, soapy water after they touch raw turkey".
