MEAT: Salmonella outbreak linked to raw turkey
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.
