Butterball is recalling more than 78,000 pounds of raw ground turkey over possible salmonella contamination. At least five people in two states have been sickened by salmonella linked to the products.
The prepackaged turkey was produced on July 7, 2018, making it unlikely any remains in retail stores…but we all know how things end up in the back of the freezer.
That’s why a Butterball spokesperson says customers should check their freezers and throw out any of the recalled products or return them to where they were bought. The recalled turkey has the number EST P-7345 inside the USDA inspection mark on the package.
