Cargill is recalling its ground turkey products which have been contaminated with salmonella. At least 76 people have become ill after eating the turkey and one man has died.
California stores began recalling ground turkey meat Wednesday following an outbreak of salmonella that has killed one and sickened dozens across the nation.
The fresh and frozen tainted meat has been sold in California under the brand names of Kroger, Honeysuckle White and Riverside, according to the state Department of Public Health spokesman Mike Sicilia.
The affected retailers include WinCo, Food 4 Less and Foods Co. Food 4 Less has dozens of locations across California, WinCo has at least 30 locations, mainly in inland areas, and Foods Co. has at least three locations in the Central Valley.
Food manufacturing giant Cargill announced a voluntarily nationwide recall of ground turkey products produced at the company's Springdale, Ark., plant from Feb. 20 through Aug. 2.
