Turkey burgers sold under the Jennie-O brand are being recalled after multiple Salmonella illnesses, according to news reports .
Jennie-O Turkey said it is recalling nearly 54,000 pounds of its raw turkey burgers because they could be contaminated with the foodborne bacteria, Salmonella.
Already, 12 people have tested positive with Salmonella with the strain linked to the turkey burgers, according to news reports.
The product affected by the recall includes: “four pound boxes of ‘all natural turkey burgers with seasonings, lean white meat.’ Each box contains 12 one-third pound individually wrapped burgers, with a use-by date of December 23, 2011,” according to news reports.
The turkey meat was sold nationwide at Sam’s Club stores.
As a North Charleston personal injury lawyer , I’m saddened to hear about this food recall linked to Salmonella. I hope all the people who have gotten food poisoning from this product are able to quickly recover from their illnesses. I urge consumers with this product to throw it out or return it to Sam’s Clubs stores for a full refund. Salmonella is a potentially fatal foodborne illness that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems.
If you believe you were sickened by foodborne bacteria, contact a doctor and have your case evaluated by a North Charleston personal injury lawyer .
