MEAT: Sal­mo­nella out­break linked to raw turkey

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Business -

Fed­eral health of­fi­cials on Thurs­day re­ported the first death in an on­go­ing sal­mo­nella out­break linked to raw turkey. The Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Pre­ven­tion said the death was in Cal­i­for­nia but didn’t have any de­tails. Since last Novem­ber, the agency said, 164 peo­ple have fallen ill in 35 states, with the most re­cent case be­ing re­ported on Oct. 20. No prod­ucts have been re­called, and the agency hasn’t rec­om­mended that peo­ple avoid eat­ing turkey. But it said it be­lieves the out­break is wide­spread and on­go­ing, and it re­minded peo­ple to prop­erly cook and han­dle turkey with Thanks­giv­ing ap­proach­ing.
