Cargill Begins Massive Recall of Turkey Linked to Salmonella Outbreak
Date:8/4/2011

THURSDAY, Aug. 4 (HealthDay News) -- U.S. meat processor Cargill announced late Wednesday that it was commencing one of the largest meat recalls in history, involving about 36 million pounds of ground turkey linked to an outbreak of salmonella.

The move may help bring experts closer to the source of the outbreak, which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says has killed one Californian and sickened at least 76 others across 26 states since March.

"It is regrettable that people may have become ill from eating one of our ground turkey products and, for anyone who did, we are truly sorry," Steve Willardsen, president of Cargill's turkey processing business, said in a written statement, The Times reported.
