Cargill Recalls Ground Turkey

September 12, 2011 by  

WICHITA, Kan., Sept. 11 (UPI) — Cargill issued a recall notice Sunday for 185,000 pounds of potentially contaminated ground turkey produced at an Arkansas packing plant.

The Kansas-based food company said in a written statement the Class I voluntary recall was issued after salmonella bacteria was discovered in ground turkey at the Springdale facility last month.

Springdale was the subject of a similar recall Aug. 3. The most-recent contamination alert stemmed from FDA inspections ordered in the wake of the earlier recall.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are acting quickly in response to USDA’s sample testing,” said Steve Willardsen, president of Cargill’s turkey processing business. “Although there are no known illnesses associated with this positive sample, it is the same Salmonella Heidelberg strain that resulted in our voluntary recall on Aug. 3.”

The recalled meat is the 85-percent lean ground turkey produced in late August and sold as patties, trays and chubs. Consumers can return the products to their grocery stores for a full refund, Cargill said.
