The news comes as Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales recalled 91,388 pounds of raw ground turkey products after the USDA linked a pack of raw ground turkey to the cause of a patient's salmonella poisoning.

1-lb. packages of "Jennie-O ITALIAN SEASONED GROUND TURKEY" with a "Use by" date of 10/02/2018. At the time, no specific brand had yet been linked to the outbreak. There's Salmonella in turkey.

CDC has stated that the outbreak of the bacterium has gained pace in the past year, which has fuelled the emergency situation.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an update, earlier this month, about a multistate salmonella outbreak linked to raw turkey. More than 60 people have been hospitalized, and there has been one death attributed to the outbreak. Food is safely cooked when the internal temperature gets high enough to kill germs that can make you sick. Minnesota has the most cases at 16.

Salmonella has been detected in a range of products, including ground turkey and turkey patties, as well as in live turkeys and pet food, CNN reported.

According to the federation, almost 88 percent of Americans surveyed by the federation eat turkey at Thanksgiving. But, as Fortune reported, "One concern is that consumers may have contaminated products in their freezers". "This information could save lives and help ensure consumers take the precautions needed to prevent anyone in their home from getting sick". Despite these ongoing efforts, we do not have the evidence to pinpoint a single common supplier of turkey products.
