In the second largest recall in U.S. history, Cargill has recalled 36 million pounds of turkey due to salmonella outbreaks that has killed one person and left dozens of others ill.
The recall includes both fresh and frozen ground turkey products made at Cargill in the Springdale, Ark., plant between February and August 2011.
Although the products were sold under different brands, Cargill states that all affected meat contains the code “Est. P-963.”
The recalled meats were sold at Kroger, HEB, Safeway, Randall’s, Tom Thumb and Giant Eagle brands and also under labels Honeysuckle White, Riverside Ground Turkey, Natural Lean Ground Turkey, Fit & Active Lean Ground Turkey, Spartan Ground Turkey and Shady Brook Farms.
Cargill is asking customers to return the products to the store of purchase for a full refund.
