Wegmans Plainville Ground Turkey Salmonella Outbreak Sickens 28

A Wegmans Plainville ground turkey Salmonella outbreak has sickened at least 28 people in 12 states. This outbreak was announced in a USDA recall notice. The USDA has issued a public health alert about 211,406 pounds of raw ground turkey in relation to this outbreak. This outbreak may be one that has been on the USDA outbreak investigation table for several weeks.

The ground turkey was produced by Plainville Brands. A recall was not requested because the government believes that these products are no longer available for sale. FSIS is concerned that these products may be frozen in consumers’ home freezers. Please check your freezer to see if you have any of these items. If you do, throw them away or take them back to the place of purchase. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling these products.

There is no information about how many patients live in each of the 12 states, which states are involved, whether anyone has been hospitalized, or the patient age range. We do know that the illness onset dates range from December 28, 2020 through March 4, 2021.

Traceback investigation found that one of the patients consumed ground turkey produced by Plainville Brands, LLC. An intact, unopened package of Plainville Brands ground turkey collected from that persons home tested positive for Salmonella Hadar. Lab testing revealed that pathogen was closely related genetically to the isolate form the patient.

The recall notice states that evidence collected to date does not link all of these illnesses to this one particular establishment. In other words, more products from more establishments may be involved. FSIS is working with the CDC and other state and local partners on this investigation.

The raw ground turkey products were produced on December 18, 2020 through December 29, 2020. These are the products that are under the public health warning:

1 pound packages of Nature’s Promise Free from 94% LEAN | 6% FAT Ground Turkey with Use by/freeze/sell by dates of 1/1/21, 1/3/21,1/4/21, 1/8/21 and 1/10/21 printed on the front of the package.
