Jennie-O Recalls Raw Ground Turkey Products for Salmonella Contamination

Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales, based in Faribault, Minnesota, is recalling about 164,210 pounds of raw ground turkey products because they may be contaminated with Salmonella Reading. The USDA and officials are investigating illnesses associated with a Salmonella Reading outbreak that is linked to raw turkey products.

Jennie-O Ground Turkey Salmonella Outbreak Recall

This recall is part of traceback activities as part of that multistate outbreak. A sample of Jennie-O brand ground turkey in an intact, unopened package taken from a patient’s home tested positive for Salmonella Reading. The bacteria found in the turkey is closely related genetically to isolates taken from the patient.

The recalled products were produced on October 22, 2018 and October 23, 2018. They include:

  • 3-pound packages of “Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 93% LEAN | 7% FAT” with “Use or freeze by” dates of 11/12/18 and 11/13/18 on the side of the trays.
  • 1-pound packages of “Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 93% LEAN | 7% FAT” with “Use or freeze by” dates of 11/12/18 on the side of the trays.
  • 1-pound packages of “Jennie-O TACO SEASONED GROUND TURKEY” with “Use or freeze by” dates of 11/12/18 on the side of the trays.
  • 1-pound packages of “Jennie-O ITALIAN SEASONED GROUND TURKEY” with “Use or freeze by” dates of 11/12/18 on the side of the trays.
  • 3-pound packages of “Jennie-O Ground Turkey 85% LEAN | 15% FAT” with a “Use or freeze by” date of 11/13/18 on the side of the trays.
  • 2.5-pound packages of “Jennie-O Ground Turkey 93% LEAN | 7% FAT” with a “Use or freeze by” date of 11/13/18 on the side of the trays.
  • 3-pound packages of “STATER BROS. 85% LEAN | 15% FAT ALL NATURAL Ground Turkey” with a “Use or freeze by” date of 11/12/18 on the side of the trays.

These products have the establishment number “EST. P-579” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were sold nationwide in retail stores.

FSIS thinks that some of this raw ground turkey may be frozen in consumers’ homes. If you have any in your home, throw it away immediately. You can also take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund.
