Butterball Turkey recall linked to Wisconsin

USDA (WAOW)– Butterball is recalling raw ground turkey after four people in Wisconsin and one from another state become ill.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS)  issued a news release about the outbreak Wednesday.

FSIS and public health partners have been investigating  the multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Schwarzengrund illnesses.

Inspectors say they collected three intact Butterball brand ground turkey samples from a Wisconsin home where 4 of the people who fell ill live.

Eating food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial

foodborne illnesses..

Symptoms may include diarrhea, cramps and fever.

Most people recover without treatment.

But, older adults, infants and those with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.
