Jennie-O turkey products recalled amid salmonella outbreak

The raw turkey products were produced on September 11, 2018.

Jennie-O Turkey Stores Sales, LLC, in Barron, Wisconsin, recalled more than 90,000 pounds of raw ground turkey after the USDA found traces of salmonella.

The products being recalled include 1-pound packages of raw, ground turkey and were sold nationwide.

At least 164 cases of salmonella have turned up in 35 states, but not all are linked to the recalled products, the agency said.
