Saw this on the evening news...
I don’t know if this has been posted…
If so spare me, cos I got ONLY the best interests of people in mind…
Maybe someone will see this and be warned!
So if it’s a double post… then maybe someone who missed the first one will see this and be spared getting sick or dying…

If you have Turkey meat, sliced, ground, breast, legs... Any Turkey meat at all.
Be advised there is a batch out of Arkansas with the numbers P-963
(sometimes that identification can be found around the exp date)
The batches from P-963 is
Loaded with salmonella and DEADLY bacteria!! Check those numbers!!!

I checked my and they were fine, but in the past I had the tainted product!
Be safe, don’t be sorry and check your Turkey meat!

This isn’t the only recall from this plant… The last one was August 3rd!

Here is a Link for Proof

All ground turkey made at the Springdale plant has "P-963" or "963" on the package, in a USDA seal or perhaps on the cellophane, Martin said. Consumers who bought products bearing that identification number can call 1-888-812-1646 for instructions on what to do, he said.

Play it safe!

Hope none of you have this tainted product!

I know the link only mentions ground turkey... But If that plant produces any other kind of Turkey meat, you gonna feel safe eating it? I sure as the hell wouldn't!

Gonna go look through my fridge now. Don't think I have any but better safe than sorry. Gotta warn the woman not to buy any either.

Hopefully it's all sorted by Thanksgiving.

Edit: We actually did have some in our fridge (not that brand). I still threw it out though.

edit on 12-9-2011 by TheWorldSpins because: (no reason given)

I don't wanna scare anyone,
just inform people!!

If you ate it this morning,
and you feel fine now...

Then I bet your gonna be fine!

I googled and came up with this site
Click Here

Typical Symptoms of Salmonella infection: Appear 6 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food and last for 3 to 7 days without treatment.

IF you think your are getting sick, seek medical help immediately!
But I would not worry... cos stress can make you sick too!

I will pray for you!

Thanks for the heads up. Just bought some turkey the other day and will investigate when I'm not half asleep. I wish I could raise my own turkeys to gobble down.

Cargill is a pretty big deal around here. It's plant is only an hour away and smells so bad.

They are known for hiring illegals too.

This just proves, once again, that industrialized farming is dangerous and inefficient. They will probably destroy thousands of pounds of meat, and maybe even all the meat that came in contact with the machinery pre-cleaning.

The way in which we produce and distribute produce and meat in the United States is a huge problem. Yet it's declared "backwards" and "unsafe" (or even tinfoil hat crazy) to have your own farm.

This is a problem.

Fruits and Vegetables Many different types of fruits and vegetables have been tainted with Salmonella over the years; tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts and cantaloupes are three examples. Fruits and vegetables can become cross-contaminated with Salmonella in restaurants. They also may be subject to the organism on the farm through contact with manure or animals or if they are cleaned with contaminated water. Thoroughly washing with clean water and cooking are two ways to prevent Salmonella poisoning from fruits and vegetables.

I pity you. Turkey is so delicious.

seems like the more techniques they have to prevent this from happening the more recalls and the most case of sickness I see...I thought it was suppose to be the other way around!

I remember my dad deer hunting and most times we would carve it up and freeze it ..but a few times he would hang the deer from a tree and just slice meat straight off of it over the course of a week the time I didnt think much of it..but by today's standards they would say oh no you will die if you do that or end up in the hospital....but ya know we never got sick!

I cook with ground turkey instead of ground beef (burgers,tacos,spaghetti) and thorough cooking kills all salmonella.

A nice copper brown color seared meat also has more flavor and retains its natural moisture aka juices.

Get a meat thermometer for thicker pieces such as entire Turkeys if you tend to not cook your poultry thoroughly enough or understand what you are doing.

Yesterday before I even knew about this current Salmonella case...

I was talking to my parents about todays standards and the ones of yester-years.

My father grew up beyond poor...

He was born in 1946...

Well in South Eastern Kentucky, 1946 might as well been 1846

Aside from Salt, Flour and a few items

Money was rare and what you got went towards the above things

If you didnt farm it, you didnt have it...
You didnt buy food...

So he was raised and learned ways of storing meats and vegetables that didnt require refrigeration...
They didnt have electricity ya know...

And I made the point that people today was wussies...
95% of the people has to have their precious filtered water...
Water can now kill you

I drink well water...We have a filter for it... But I hate that thing...
-Au Natural- (Say it with a french accent, ha) doesnt hurt me!

My wife... I Love Her... But its Bottled Water from the store for her...

My Father and his people took slabs of meat, cured it out/smoked it... let it hang in a building...
Mind you it was cold out when they hung it... But no refrigerator or freezer...

In the summer time if they had any left over...
Sometimes it would grow mold on it...
Wash off the mold... and fry it!!!
didnt kill a one of them...

Makes me think a lot of the things that poison food such as Salmonella... was introduced into our food supply on purpose...

Just goes to show you that when you cut corners to save money,
its never a good idea and people get hurt!

Hiring illegal workers is shady,
proving the company only cares for profit,
They are willing to hire under trained, illegal people to turn out a product...

I posted a thread a lil while back about a company that cut corners when it came to safety
and the result was the death of two maintenance men

This is a problem.

I love meat, Forget the other stuff as long as I have a big pile of meat to devour!
But I agree with you!

I can personally vouch that junk they call meat in the store is not like the real stuff...

Turkey for example...
That store bought bird... its "ok"
But one you raise your self...
or hunt in the wild... OH MAN, its 5000 times better!

But wait I am crazy and cruel for eating fresh meat that was running in the woods 5 hours prior...

In stead I need my doze of tainted food product!

Aww, don't pity me. Growing up, I was never really that fond of the taste of cooked meat, no matter what way it was prepared. I then became a vegetarian and cut it out all together. I'll never look back

Yea. I once thought about working there but the hours were too long for me (nearly 15 hour shifts + over time). They also have a huge waiting list of people wanting to work there. Also the smell was a big turn off lmao. It just hits you and stays for a couple miles til your out of range.

.About one in six cellphones tested in the U.K. had traces of E. coli
bacteria from fecal matter, a new study released for Global Handwashing
Day suggests...
..Researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
and Queen Mary, University of London travelled to 12 cities in Britain,
took 390 samples from cellphones and hands and then analyzed the
samples in the lab to record the type and number of germs. ..More than 90 per cent of cellphones tested harboured bacteria... ..Fernando Llano/Associate Press....
..The findings included:....
Although 95 per cent of people said
they washed their hands with soap where possible, 92 per cent of phones
and 82 per cent of hands had bacteria on them.
16 per cent of hands and 16 per cent of phones were found to harbour E. coli bacteria that are associated with stomach upsets.
Those who had bacteria on their hands were three times as likely to have bacteria on their phone.
....If ingested, E.coli can cause diarrhea, extreme abdominal cramping and pain, nausea and vomiting, and in extreme cases, death...
..A strain of E. coli O157 was implicated in a fatal outbreak of food poisoning in Germany in June...
..Fecal bacteria can survive on hands and surfaces for hours,
especially in warmer temperatures away from sunlight; it is easily
transferred by touch to door handles, food and cellphones, the
researchers said...
..Public health experts advise people to wash their hands carefully after using the washroom...
..Handwashing tips include:....
Take time to wash properly — long enough the sing the ..Happy birthday.. song twice.
Remove jewellery.
Wash both the front and back of hands.
Scrub fingers including under fingernails.
Use soap and water.
year, 3.5 million children under the age of five are killed by
pneumonia and diarrheal diseases that can be prevented by handwashing,
the researchers noted...
..Global Handwashing Day, held on October 15 every year, aims to make handwashing with soap an automatic behaviour...
..The coalition behind the awareness campaign includes GlaxoSmithKline,
Initial Washroom Solutions, London School of Hygiene & Tropical
Medicine, Sanofi Pasteur MSD, School Councils UK, Queen Mary, University
of London, The Ideas Foundation and Wellcome Trust... reply to post by EvolEric
