UPDATE: Butterball Turkey Recalled After 6 Salmonella Illnesses

March 2019 — Butterball is recalling 39 tons of ground turkey after at least 6 people were infected with Salmonella since December 2018. The illnesses were reported in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North Carolina, according to the CDC.

Butterball recalled pre-packaged raw ground turkey that was produced on July 7 and marked with a “Use-By” date of July 26, 2018, according to a notice posted by the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service.

Because the turkey was packaged 9 months ago, it is unlikely to be in stores, but consumers may still have it in their freezers.

The outbreak of illnesses from Butterball turkey products are not related to a deadly outbreak of Salmonella that was linked to Jennie-O raw ground turkey, pet food, and other turkey products in 2018.

What is the Problem?

Investigators took a sample of Jennie-O® ground turkey in an intact, unopened package from a sick person’s home. The patient tested positive for Salmonella and a sample of the ground turkey also tested positive, matching the outbreak strain of Salmonella.

Salmonella Outbreak

The outbreak involves 164 people who fell ill with Salmonella in 35 states, including 1 person in California who died. Patients have reported eating different types and brands of turkey products from many different stores, or handling raw turkey, or raw turkey pet food.

Salmonella Food Poisoning

Eating food that is contaminated with Salmonella bacteria can cause an illness known as salmonellosis, which is one of the most common types of food poisoning.

The symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food. The symptoms usually last from 4 to 7 days.

“Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.
