THURSDAY, Aug. 11 (HealthDay News) -- Some 107 people in 31 states have now been infected with an outbreak strain of Salmonella Heidelberg found in some ground turkey made by Cargill Inc., the latest report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows.

That's up from last week's 76 cases in 26 states. Still, only one death from the outbreak, which began in March, has been reported. The outbreak caused the Minneapolis-based Cargill, the third largest producer of turkey products in the United States, to recall 36 million pounds of possibly contaminated ground turkey -- one of the largest meat recalls in history.

"The current outbreak of human Salmonella infection associated with turkey meat once again points out the risks associated with the production, handling and preparation of meat and poultry products," said Dr. Pascal James Imperato, dean of the School of Public Health at the Downstate Medical Center in New York City.

"Salmonella species are frequently present in the intestinal tracts of poultry, including turkeys, and contamination during processing is an ever-present risk," he added.

The current number of ill individuals identified in each state is as follows: Alabama (1), Arkansas (1), Arizona (3), California (6), Colorado (2), Georgia (2), Illinois (13), Indiana (1), Iowa (2), Kansas (1), Kentucky (2), Louisiana (1), Massachusetts (3), Maryland (1), Michigan (12), Minnesota (2), Mississippi (1), Missouri (4), Nebraska (2), Nevada (1), New York (2), North Carolina (3), Ohio (10), Oklahoma (1), Oregon (1), Pennsylvania (5), South Dakota (3), Tennessee (2), Texas (14), Utah (1) and Wisconsin (4), according to the CDC.

The one death linked to the outbreak involved a case in Sacramento County, Calif., that was reported by state officials, the Associated Press reported.
