And consumers with Jennie-O Ground Turkey 93% Lean, Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey, Ground Turkey 85% Lean and Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey in their freezers should toss them out or return them to the store for a full refund.

Symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product.

The CDC is urging consumers to practice safe preparation and cooking, including washing hands frequently when handling raw products, cleaning food preparation areas thoroughly, and cooking meat to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Jennie-O Turkey is recalling the ground turkey products due to an illness outbreak.

The first illnesses related to the strain began in November of past year, according to a CDC investigation.

In a new update to its ongoing report, the CDC reveals that a further 74 confirmed cases of salmonella have now been added to the case, bringing the total number of infections to 164 spanning 35 states. "15% FAT" with a "Use by" date of 10/02/2018. "7% FAT" with "Use by" dates of 10/01/2018 and 10/02/2018.

Officials say the investigation is still underway, and more products could be recalled.

"This is one of these outbreaks that is so troubling to me, because I don't have good advice", said Minneapolis Attorney Ryan Osterholm. Producers use food-grade rinses that kill or reduce the growth of bacteria, organic sprays to clean the turkeys and inhibit bacteria, and USDA inspectors are "continuously present" in every turkey facility to monitor food safety, the industry group said.

"It is the responsibility of the government to ensure that the turkeys headed for our Thanksgiving tables do not harbor antibiotic-resistant bacteria that have caused human illness and death".

Most people get better within four to seven days without seeking medical attention, but sometimes the illness becomes so severe that those sickened with the illness require hospitalization.

They said additional products from other companies could be named as their investigation continues.

The CDC recommends people thaw their raw turkey carefully and cook it through fully to avoid food poisoning. The CDC has reported that many of those affected purchased ground turkey, turkey parts, or whole turkeys.
