Ground Turkey Salmonella Victim Count At 111

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The ground turkey Salmonella outbreak count continues to rise with, as of the most recent numbers, 111 people sickened in 31 states and, tragically, one death. At least 27 people have been hospitalized. The illnesses are linked to tainted turkey produced by Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. of Springdale, Arkansas.

On August 3rd, Cargill recalled a massive 36 million pounds of various types of its ground turkey in response to the deadly outbreak.

The recall involves fresh and frozen ground turkey chubs and retail trays of ground turkey meat and patties, said NewsInferno. Recalled turkey was sold under Honeysuckle White, Giant Eagle, Riverside, HEB, Kroger, Safeway, Fit & Active, Shady Brook Farms, and Spartan brands.

The current figures include newly reported cases from February 27th and August 9th and involve the original Salmonella outbreak strain and a new, very similar, related Salmonella strain said the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), wrote MSNBC. Because the latest figures are from August 9th, more illnesses are expected.

Initial contamination was linked to an antibiotic-resistant strain of Salmonella called Salmonella Heidelberg, said MSNBC. The second strain is closely related to the first and was discovered via genetic fingerprinting. A total of 73 patients have provided full information and, of these, over one-third required hospitalization, said the CDC, according to MSNBC.

The recall has prompted at least two lawsuits. The first was filed against Cargill in early August on behalf of a man from Arizona who alleges he was hospitalized with Salmonella Heidelberg in June, reported NewsInferno.

The second lawsuit was brought by the parents of a one-year-old Oregon girl, Ruby Jane Lee, who fell ill with the antibiotic-resistant Salmonella strain after eating a tainted ground turkey meatball from a spaghetti and meatball dinner her dad made, said NewsInferno. According to her parents, Ruby Jane Lee fell ill when she was 10 months old and suffered from diarrhea and high fever; she required one week of hospitalization.
