Ground Turkey Recall/ Food Safety System in U.S.
Donâ€™t touch that ground turkey! Last Wednesday, meat selling giant, Cargill, sent out one of the largest meat recalls in U.S. History.
Over thirty-six million pounds of ground turkey were called back- as they were found riddled with an anti-biotic resistant strain of salmonella. One person has died, and over seventy-six people have fallen sick.
This outbreak began in March, so why is the recall just occurring now? What makes this strain of salmonella different? Whatâ€™s being done about it? Next on â€œAll Sides,â€ weâ€™ll talk about the issues with general food safety in the U.S. brought to the forefront by this massive meat recall. That and more on All Sides with Ann Fisher, 89-seven, NPR News.
