AP) WASHINGTON — Federal officials say one person has died from salmonella poisoning that appears to be linked to eating ground turkey, but the government is still investigating who produced the meat and has not initiated a recall.




Seventy-six people in 26 states have been made sick from the same strain of the disease. The CDC did not say where the person who died became sick and released no details about the death.


They have been searching for months and cant find this? Glad its not Thanks Giving

Thank you. I'm glad to see that my state hasn't had an outbreak yet.
Even though the article is long, I do not like how vague it is. It doesn't tell us anything except the government is afraid to do a recall and cook your meat well.

One thing I'm sure of is this turkey had to come from a factory farm, and with the way the govt. is reacting, probably a major company runs it. I've done some research on food production, and it seems that food borne illnesses come from the poor conditions at factory farms that foster disease.
I know not everyone is blessed to have access to non-massed produced food, but it might be best to avoid mass produced food as much as possible.

Could you report to us whether or not you or those who ate the turkey taco's develop symptoms? If you do/don't develop symptoms, you could inform the ATS community what brand you had in case they have the same brand in their freezers.

You might have to carefully monitor your symptoms, if you've eaten a lot of raw eggs, like cookie dough or cake batter, as a kid, you might not be obvious that you have food poisoning.

During the Peter Pan peanut butter salmonella outbreak in 2006 (or was it 2007?), a coworker and I never developed severe symptoms. I personally went through a jar and a half wondering why my stomach felt like it was burning (similar to heartburn) after eating it and I'd have to use the bathroom within an hour. I never guessed I had food poisoning, until I mentioned it to my coworker who said he had similar symptoms. We checked our jars and it wasn't part of the recall yet.. (Our jar's lot numbers were added a week later). Anyway another coworker got really ill eating the peanut butter and we had determined that the coworker and I must've built a tolerance to salmonella since we've eaten a lot of batter in our lives. The really sick coworker had not eaten that much raw dough.

Better lay off the fish in Connecticut River, Vermont,, as well

Enviroment Pollution in USA on Wednesday, 03 August, 2011 at 02:55 (02:55 AM) UTC.


quote
"Vermont health officials say radioactive strontium-90 has been found in a fish sample taken from the Connecticut River 9 miles upstream from the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant. William Irwin, the state's chief radiological health officer, said Tuesday that the sample was unusual in that the strontium-90 was found in the fleshy, edible portion of the smallmouth bass sample. Irwin says the substance more often turns up in fish bones. Irwin says it's not certain whether the material came from Vermont Yankee or from atmospheric deposits left over from atomic-bomb testing in the 1950s and `60s or from the Chernobyl accident. He says it's unlikely it would have been from the Fukushima disaster so soon after that incident in Japan."

Didn't Hardies come out with turkey burgers around the end of March? Would be interesting to know if the states effected all had Hardies and if any of those people had eaten there.

That was my thought too. Carl's Jr which is the parent company of Hardee's just started carrying a turkey burger as well around the same time.

Sure seems like TPB are protecting someone's butt

This makes me filled with joy.
We need many more instances of this with any all types of meat.
Viruses to parasites, it is beneficial to the species in the long run.
