Cargrill, Inc. announced a recall of 185,000 lbs of ground turkey, in addition to the 36 million lbs recalled in August, according to recent news sources.
Both batches of turkey were found to contain Salmonella Heidelberg, a strain that is particularly resistant to antibiotics. Health officials linked 111 illnesses in 31 different states to the original recall, and at least one death.
The meat was produced in Springdale, Arkansas and products are labeled with the brand names Honeysuckle White, HEB and Kroger, including a label with the number P-963 inside the USDA mark of inspection.
There have been no illnesses reported in connection with the latest recall, but consumers are urged to return the product to their store of purchase for a full refund.
Production has been halted at the Arkansas plant until officials can determine the source of contamination.
As a Olympia personal injury lawyer, consumer health is something that I am very conscious of and I know that even with tough rules and regulations on food manufacturers, mistakes can still be made. I encourage anyone who is experiencing the symptoms of salmonella to seek immediate medical attention. The personal injury lawyer at our law firm sincerely hope that no one has been sickened by consuming the recalled ground turkey.
