FSIS disclose Salmonella outbreak traced to raw turkey

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the mishandling of turkey might be the cause of the new widespread Salmonella outbreak that has already reached more than half of the 50 states.

Raw turkey products from a variety of sources are contaminated with Salmonella and are making people sick. Two individuals reported falling ill after their dogs and cats ate pet food containing raw turkey.

The CDC has not pinpointed a single, common supplier of raw turkey yet.

In addition to MA, the CDC says illnesses have been reported in Alaska, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin. On Thursday, the agency said in a statement that it has not identified a single source for the outbreak. "CDC and USDA-FSIS have shared this information with representatives from the turkey industry and asked about steps that they may be taking to reduce Salmonella contamination", according to the agency.

"It just shows how salmonella, particularly antibiotic-resistant salmonella, can be in one location and spread through the entire food chain", he told The Washington Post.

CDC is not advising that consumers avoid eating properly cooked turkey products, or that retailers stop selling raw turkey products.

Thoroughly wash your hands before and after preparing food, coming into contact with animals, and after using the restroom or changing diapers.

- Cook raw turkey thoroughly to an internal temperature of 165 degrees and heat leftovers to 165 degrees. "Use a food thermometer to check, and place it in the thickest part of the food", the CDC says. This can spread germs around your kitchen and sink.

Keep your food preparation area clean by washing utensils, cutting boards, and countertops with hot, soapy water.

Federal health officials also advise against feeding raw diets to pets.

Don't wash raw poultry before cooking it.
