Ground Turkey Recall

Meat processing giant Cargill has recalled 36 million pounds of ground turkey products distributed nationwide since March 1 of this year. Nearly 40% of people sickened have been hospitalized.The products carry many different brand names, including Honeysuckle White, Kroger, Safeway, and several more. A complete list can be found at the Cargill web site .
While the Salmonella strain found in the turkey products is dangerous, it's easily killed by cooking. Be sure to cook all poultry to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Don't guess: Use a food thermometer to be sure.
