Salmonella Fears Spark Second Ground Turkey Recall

September 11, 2011

Less than a month after a massive ground turkey recall, Cargill Inc. announced a second round of recalls following a positive salmonella test at one of their plants. 

A sample from a plant Springdale, Arkansas tested positive for salmonella on August 24. The latest recall covers about 185,000 pounds of ground turkey sold under the "Kroger, Fresh HEB and Cargill's Honeysuckle White brands." No illnesses have been associated with the meat this time. All affected products have "P-963" or "963" written on the packaging and were produced on August 23 or 24. 

"Food safety is a top priority and taken extremely seriously at Cargill because we know that millions of people throughout the U.S. are eating food that we produce every day and we want to do everything we can to make sure that people are getting the safest food possible," spokesman Mike Martin said.
