Cargill Announces Recall Of 185K Pounds Of Ground Turkey

WASHINGTON (AP) — Minnesota-based Cargill Inc. is recalling more ground turkey products because of possible salmonella contamination.

The company recalled 36 million pounds of ground turkey last month after a salmonella outbreak that federal health officials say had sickened 107 people in 31 states by Aug. 11. One person died in California.

That recall covered products from Cargill’s plant in Springdale, Ark.

The company shut down the plant but said Aug. 17 it had resumed limited production after the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved additional safety measures.

The USDA said Sunday that Cargill was recalling about 185,000 pounds of ground turkey products made after production resumed because a sample tested positive for salmonella. No illnesses linked to those products have been reported.

The ground turkey was reportedly distributed under the Honeysuckle White, H-E-B and Kroger brand names.
