After warning about an ongoing outbreak of salmonella in raw turkey a week ahead of Thanksgiving, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) just announced a recall of raw ground turkey products.

The products being recalled include one-pound packages of raw, ground turkey and were sold nationwide.

The samples were from a September 11, 2018 production, and, according to the USDA, the rest of the products shipped nationwide.

Government officials traced this back to a salmonella patient's home.

The overall outbreak of an antibiotic-resistant strain of salmonella reading, ongoing since November 2017, has made at least 164 people ill, with a third having needed hospitalization, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) investigation notice on November 8.

The strain is present in live turkeys as well as numerous raw turkey products, including food for humans and pets, which the CDC notes could mean the strain is widespread throughout the entire turkey industry. "Based on the continuing investigation, additional product from other companies may also be recalled". The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider. Most people recover without treatment.

It's unclear where the turkey at the center of this outbreak came from, as there doesn't appear to be one centralized distributor, and the USDA is (somewhat controversially) not naming particular brands. "If we had specific products that we could alert consumers with a Public Health Alert, we would issue one". Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.

Regulators say the product should be thrown away.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) responded Thursday, stating that the agency had not identified the source of the outbreak and criticized the organizations calling for the agency to name turkey suppliers without hard evidence of a link to the illness.
