Jennie-O is recalling more than 91,000 pounds of ground turkey that may be linked to a salmonella outbreak. The USDA says that a sample of the products tested positive for a salmonella reading matching the outbreak strain. The Centers for Disease Control says that 74 cases of salmonella, including one death, have been linked to raw turkey products. The CDC announced the outbreak in July, but more people have gotten sick, bringing the total to 164 in 35 states. One person in California has died, and 63 people have been hospitalized. The center adds that the outbreak began in November 2017 and that it might be widespread in the turkey industry.
