Salmonella in a sample of Cargill Inc. ground turkey recalled earlier this month has been confirmed to be a multi-drug resistant strain of Salmonella Heidelberg, Bloomberg Business Week said. Cargill recalled 185,000 pounds of potentially contaminated ground turkey over concerns the poultry was tainted with the dangerous pathogen that is resistant to four different antibiotics: Ampicillin, gentamicin, streptomycin, and tetracycline, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

In August, Cargill recalled another 35.7 million pounds of ground turkey from the same plant in Springdale, Arkansas. Both recalls were deemed Class I actions by the FSIS, which means that the recalls represent a health hazard situation in which there exists a reasonable probability that the use of the recalled product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.

The ground turkey recalled in August was linked to one death, over 100 illness, and dozens of hospitalizations in a 30-state Salmonella outbreak. Cargill was forced to temporarily cease production at the Springdale plant. According to a spokesperson, new USDA-approved safety protocols have since been implemented there.

Cargill has been named in at least two lawsuits stemming from the ground turkey Salmonella outbreak. The parents of a year-old Oregon allege she developed Salmonella poisoning when she was 10-months old and was hospitalized for one week after eating spaghetti and meatballs made with tainted ground turkey.. Another lawsuit was filed against Cargill on behalf an Arizona man who claims he was hospitalized with the outbreak strain of Salmonella in June.
