Butterball Turkey Recall


Butterball, LLC has just recalled over 78,000 pounds of raw ground turkey due to a potential salmonella contamination. 39 tons of affected product were shipped to distributors nationwide, making this a class I recall with a high health risk; with five reported cases across two states, this is now considered a multistate outbreak. This product was packed and shipped last summer, with an establishment number of “EST. P-7345” and a use-or-sell-by date of July 26, 2018, meaning it’s highly unlikely to be found in stores, but could still be in people’s freezers.



Affected product include the following:

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach pain, occurring anywhere from 12-72 hours after consumption. Though healthy individuals often recover after 4–7 days, the risk of a potentially lethal infection increases for the young, elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
