Cargill Recalls Ground Turkey Products

Last updated on Tuesday, September 13, 2011

(UNDATED) - Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. has announced a recall of approximately 185,000 pounds of ground turkey products that could be contaminated with a strain of Salmonella.

The voluntary recall was announced by Cargill and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

It's the second time in less than two months that Cargill has recalled ground turkey products.

The latest recall includes ground turkey sold under the H.E.B., Honeysuckle White and Kroger brands.

Products were manufactured at Cargill's Springdale, Ark., turkey processing facility on Aug. 23, 24, 30 and 31.

Cargill stated in a press release that the recall was a precautionary measure after one confirmed test sample taken by the USDA showed low levels of Salmonella Heidelberg.
A complete list of products affected can be found at cargill.com and look under news releases. Or call the USDA at 888-674-6854.
