Ongoing Turkey Salmonella Outbreak Sickens 12 In New York, First Death Reported

CDC links Salmonella outbreak in 35 states to raw turkey products

The raw turkey samples collected from ill people's homes are still being investigated to determine the source of the turkey.

The news and stories that matter, delivered weekday mornings.November 8, 2018 / 9:54 PM GMTBy Maggie FoxOne person has died and 164 have been made sick in an outbreak of salmonella linked to raw turkey, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.The outbreak has been going on for a year now, and 63 people have been sick enough to be hospitalized, the CDC said.

The CDC said the strain of Salmonella has been found in a variety of turkey products, including ground turkey and turkey patties.

The CDC announced the outbreak in July, but more people have gotten sick, bringing the total to 164 in 35 states.

One person in California, according to the CDC, has died.

"The fact that investigators have been unable to pinpoint the outbreak's starting point, and that the outbreak strain is now "present in live turkeys and in many types of raw turkey products", leads the CDC to believe that "[salmonella] might be widespread in the turkey industry", the release says.

"We are still seeing new illnesses being reported on a weekly basis", Colin Basler, an epidemiologist with the CDC, said, according to The Associated Press.

IL and Minnesota have seen the most cases since the outbreak started last November.

Salmonella's symptoms usually start 12 to 72 hours after a person gets exposed to the unsafe bacteria, according to the Mayo Clinic. Leftovers should also be reheated to a temperature of 165°F.

Don't wash raw meat before cooking so you can minimize the spread of germs to other surfaces.

Symptoms of salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea and stomach cramps, and they usually last four to seven days. Though most people recover without treatment, young children and older adults are at a great risk.

They say eating properly cooked turkey products is fine, and retailers should not fear selling raw turkey products.

Don't thaw turkey by leaving it out on the counter.

The CDC added that it does not recommend feeding raw diets to pets, as germs like salmonella can easily make you or your pet sick.
